Interesting trussrod

    I just bought a crappy old russian bass.
    The trussrod can be adjusted through a spokewheel behind the neck plate.
    I thought it was a cool design and I've never seen that elsewhere.

    Yeah, that's what I mean.
    Spokewheels are great, StingRays have had them for years.
    Now, I've never seen one in the back of the bass like this.
    It seems interesting to me because it's hidden.
