Highway 1 - trussrod access at heel a problem?

    Hi, guys! I was considering getting a Fender Highway One Jazz (if that is the correct name for the latest version of this series), but I read on these forums that the trussrod on these basses is adjusted at the heel. Does that mean that the neck will have to be removed for the trussrod to be adjusted? Or does it come with some kind of tool that allows adjustment without taking off the neck?

    If so, it is a dealbreaker for me; due to the climate where I live, I have to adjust the trussrod quite often, and I've sworn a solemn oath to never again purchase an instrument with trussrod access at the heel. :p
  2. No not at all. There's a small gap in the pickguard and body, and they give you a long wrech to turn the truss rod with.

    I concur. Easy access. Don't let it deter you. The HW1 are excellent instruments.

    This might help. It's a picture of a 2006 HWY1 P.
