ok so I'm finally getting around to dealing with this after simply replacing the neck several years ago.. I'm trying to put together a P/J combo fun bass and would like to rescue this basket case neck if at all feasible. It's a 2008 MIM Fender 70s Jazz RI neck whose previous owner obviously overtorqued the bullet truss rod and split the fretboard. I bought the bass whole and bad on me, didn't notice it until I got it home. Long story there... I won't bore y'all with it... I'm a little embarrassed about it honestly. I bought a replacement neck from a TB'er and moved on. Chalk it up to a learning experience. Anyway. It has a bad bow in it (towards the nut end of the neck) that will not adjust, even with tension released off of the truss rod. So it would seem that the truss rod is blown. It's got a skunk stripe so it would seem to me (understanding that I know basically nothing about this) that replacing it would be a somewhat simpler matter than if the fretboard were to have to be removed. So my questions are: A: is it even worth the $$ to get this fixed? If so, what would be a reasonable expectation for my cost? B: will it be as good or close to new (functionally) after the repair? C: once the truss rod is replaced, will the damage in the fingerboard be repairable or is that something I'd just have to live with? I really do love these necks. The radius is just perfect and I love the look of them. I'd buy another one but they're seemingly harder to come by these days and the newer versions are plain expensive. Thanks for any help y'all can provide on this!
