I just bought a Fender Classic 50's P-Bass a couple of weeks ago and installed 1050 ML's then. Not surprisingly, it's time for a truss rod adjustment. This is the first bass I've worked on with the adjustment at the heel that didn't have a notch in the pickguard where I could insert the phillips head screwdriver to make the adjustment. I don't want to notch the pickguard (gold anodized aluminum). Do you guys usually remove the neck completely or just loosen the 4 bolts enough to make the adjustment? My gut tells me to remove it completely, but I'm open to input.
