    I ordered a Schecter CV-4 Natural ash bass that should arrive tomorrow.

    I just ordered a Made in Japan Traditional 60s Precision Bass® Midnight direct from Fender.com. Fender gave me a 10% discount for being a Fender Player member and free shipping.

    I will post pics in this thread when they arrive. :thumbsup:

    I played the Fender today.
    Seems like a quality bass compared to those other new Fenders.

    I need to adjust the action and/or truss rod. It feels comfortable to play and not too heavy.

    Both basses are nice, but I am really digging that new P bass.
    Congratulations!

    The p-bass needed no adjusting at all. Just tuned up half a step and play. I can't believe how nice this bass plays and sounds. It has lower and narrower frets than my American Pro p-bass or my Fender Flea jazz bass. The neck fits my hand perfectly.

    I adjusted the truss rod and saddle height and the bass plays and sounds great now. No fret buzz.

    Just wondering, is the truss rod access at the top or bottom of the neck? Any covers to take off, or is it pretty easy to reach the truss rod nut?

    The truss rod adjustment is at the bottom of the neck. It is easy to reach without having to remove anything first.

    That's good. I think you just made me want to buy this bass. :)

    Would you mind posting a picture of the truss rod access? From the pics I see online at Fender, it looks like you have to take the neck off to adjust the truss rod. And there is a 5 page thread on TB about that bass where they say you have to take the neck off to adjust the truss rod. Of course it is a black bass so it is hard to tell where it is in all the photos. Thanks!

    The truss rod adjustment was made on the Schecter, not the Fender. Sorry about the confusion. The truss rod adjustment on the MIJ Fender is located on the pick guard end of the neck and requires a screwdriver to make the adjustment. At minimum, the pick guard would need to be removed to access the truss rod.
