    Does anyone know of a good tech or luthier that could replace a snapped truss rod on a neck through Carvin bass? I've left this thing sit around but I really need to get it repaired. I am in the Chicago area, but could ship it anywhere else for a good repair job. I appreciate any info you guys might have...

    It is going to be an expensive repair, the bass has to come back apart and then re-assembled. I'd get estimates and compare that amount with what the bass is worth via ebay, it will probably be cheaper to sell off the other parts (and case) on ebay and buy a similar bass used.
