I am saddened by a couple of issues with my new P-Bass. I have had it for a week and love the feel and sound, but I think she will be going back to fender. My first problem showed up as I was wiping it down. I found hairline cracking in the finish coming up each of the ferrules on the back and two cracks coming from the bridge on the front. You have to be looking close in the right light to notice them, but who knows what they will look like in 6-months. My second issue is the kicker. I started noticing an odd resonance when I hit an open A or certain frets on the D-string nearing the middle of the board. I believe it is the truss rod. I found that as I knock on the neck anywhere between the 5th fret and the 12th fret it sounds completely hollow with a rattle from the truss. Closer inspection concluded that the odd resonance from the open A and certain other notes was because of this. You can hear the truss vibrating while hitting those notes. Have any of you "new 08' MIA" Jazz or P owners experienced this truss phenomenon? I am worried to order another lefty because I found that the four 08' MIA's(two J's/two P's) that I tested the other day had this same neck/truss rod issue. Thanks for listening.
