I have a CIJ Geddy Lee Jazz Bass that I have had for a very long time. It is a great sounding bass, the only problem was the action was really high. Now as many of you know, the truss rod adjustment is a screw at the bottom of the neck where it connects to the body. Every time I would look at the thin sliver of the screw showing above the pickguard, I would just say to myself, don’t mess with it. The bass sounds great don’t mess with the neck. I know that screw was obnoxiously mocking me, calling me a coward. Well, I was reading on this forum about one of the guys getting a MIA Geddy Lee the other day, and he lamented about the location of the truss rod adjustment. Lots of posters on the thread, encouraged him to partially take off the neck and adjust it. I finally said, screw it, I am adjusting the dang truss rod on this bass. So with great trepidation I loosened the strings, took off the pickguard, and unscrewed the screws holding the neck on about halfway off. I got it high enough to expose the entire screw head, but it was still tough to turn with a screwdriver laying flat on top of the pickups, so I had a little flat screw driver with no handle, and grabbed a pair of pliers to turn the screwdriver. This gave me more torque on the screw and I was able to turn it easily. Put everything back in place, and Wow!!, unbelievable results. The action is awesome now. Now, I decided to look at the serial number on the back of the neck, and it says Crafted in Japan and the serial number starts with an A, which means it was made circa 1998. I got this new, so that means I have had this bass for at least 20 years. Thanks to this forum, I finally decided to give it a shot, with wonderful results. Thanks everyone! The truss rod screw now fears me. Ha! For anybody in the same boat as I was, don't wait 20 years, JUST DO IT! I am including a pic. of the screwdriver that worked well for me, using pliers to turn it.
