    Was the conversion to spoke wheel truss rod adjuster difficult? It's the difficult access for adjustment that keeps me from hopping on the Road Worn Train.

    Not so fast, #1... I started off with a fiesta red P then picked up a Flea about 4 months ago or so. Love 'em both!

    Me too! Also have a sunburst and fiesta Red RW P.
  5. Sweet, nice basses guys! I have been jonesing for one of those since they came out to match my Shell Pink Precision.
    @SJan3 if your worried about adjusting the truss rod, I wouldn't stress. It's just not a problem, you can do it fairly easily. But honestly my basses (23) rarely need an adjustment and in Oregon we have some pretty extreme temp/humidity changes. I have about ten fenders and I don't think I've touched the TR on any in the last 2-3 years.
  6. I've seen the error of my ways and I would like to make amends for excluding the Justin Meldel RW Mustang bass. In spite of anything I may have said earlier in this thread.
    Please accept my most humble apology. To be all inclusive lets just say any model Fender makes with a Road Worn label on it is most welcome.

    Following is my thread following along as I installed the spoke wheel truss rod adjuster on both the RW P and the RW J. There are some other suggestions to handle truss rod adjustment, but the wheel is handy.

    stewmac spoke wheel truss rod nut mod?

    It could have been cleaner, but hey, it's a Road Worn :). Actually, on hind sight, if you clamp something across the width of the bass you might be able to use that as a guide to keep that bottom cut even. Hind sight is 20/20 ...

    Well I am back in the fold soon. Had a RW Jazz before. Easily my best playing bass but had to sell it for some work gear. Finallly got a RW Precision, been wanting one since I saw it a couple of years ago. As a birthday gift to myself got it brand new too lol. Can’t wait to try a bunch of flats on it to see what works well.

  12. I haven’t heard of any changes. The guard has two small holes for the pup cover already.

    Yeah this one I got has no holes for the thumb rest or pickup and bridge cover. There are holes in the guard but it’s not drilled all the way.

    Looking to give them a try after my test set of TI flats. I loved the group 3 flats.

    One of these days I'm going to step into some TIs. Keep saying I will but I keep spending my pennies on other stuff, like fronting a new drum set to my feckless drummer

  17. My RW jazz came with holes in the guard for the rest and cover but no holes in the body. I had no plans to use either but did drill shallow holes with a small drill bit to give the appearance of use. There were holes for the bridge cover already.

    Check out amazon, it went as deal of the day when I got it, it was about $40 compared to the usual $60-$70.

    I see. I didn’t know that was the case. The used RW Jazz I get before had all the holes. First time getting a new one, and I was checking pics in online stores of the actual basses and they seem to have the holes.
