This post really serves no purpose other than to warn people of the hit and miss quality of Fender, because I don't deny that there are some really nice ones out there, including Geddy Lee J-basses. Anyway, the one I just recieved from Musicians Friend is absolute garbage. The neck is totally tweaked. There is so much relief in the neck you can practically see it. What a joy it was to take the neck off to adjust the truss rod. Low and behold I turned it about a millimeter and it's completely tight!! No adjustment available. This bass is unplayable. Also, upon closer inspection, I noticed the neck is installed crooked and there is a pretty big gap in the neck pocket. Regarding the truss rod, even if I got a perfect one, I think I would consider sending this bass back. I mean it's a pain to adjust the truss rod. Unless there is something I am missing and you dont have to remove the neck to adjust it. I remember somebody posted something about it on here that it is possible, but I don't see how. Anyway, I just had to post this because I am highly bummed and really looked forward to getting this bass. It's ashame because the bass looks really cool and the open strings sound great.
