I'd like to meet the jerk who made the decision to put the truss rod at the end of the neck in American Standard basses. Why on earth would they go back to this stupid configuration? I'm guessing to save money. I bought one used, didn't come with the wrench, and for me to adjust it with a normal hex wrench I have to take the whole pick guard off. Which I just did the other day, but I've changed strings since, and it needs another adjustment. Plus, I just ran around town looking for a suitable wrench and came up empty-handed. I hate everything and everyone right now.
