    Yes. I just recently figured out that my squire pbass has a stripped truss rod.. A shame considering I just went through alot of trouble to defret it. Is there anything I can do to tighten it. Or is the neck beyond repair?!

    You may be able to atke out the wood from the back of the neck heel and remove the anchor nut at that end. It may be able to be replaced that way. Or you could get a used neck pretty cheap...

    Just depends on how much you would want to spend on it. I know I love my Squier, and would spend a lot to save it.
