    Have an '86 Fender Jazz Special that I'm about to repaint that has a body side truss that I can't adjust without removing the neck.

    I replaced its original neck with a Fender fretless neck that looks like it will take a flat or phillips head. Presently, I have to remove the neck for any truss adjustments.

    Now that it's sanded, should I notch out the body so that I have access to the truss without removing the neck? Or is this a bad idea? If I should, what would be the best way to do it?

    I know nothing of these things, but I do have access to tools.

    Thanks guys!
