    hey,
    my friend needs to play his Tune Fretless tomorrow night for a gig... wants me to adjust the neck for him.
    (let's just say that he's not technically-inclined)
    i think it's a WB series from how he described it over the phone... i'm gonna go check it out tomorrow, but i was wondering...

    what type of truss rod tool does this bass use?
    hex wrench? yamaha type?
    thank you!!!
     
  2. I'd use the holy-cow-better-take-this-to-the-shop rod.

    i'm not asking you how does one perform a truss rod adjustment.
    :confused:
     
  4. It was a joke... ;)

    John DiMaggio at www.bassalone.com is a Tune dealer. He's about the only person I know that may be able to help you. Good luck!:)

    cool!
    thanks a lot JP.
    i was just heading out the door to the soundcheck!

    btw, this tune bass belongs to Reginald Veal,
    if anybody is going to see Cassandra Wilson tonight at Ga Tech - Ferst Center.
    He'll be playing this bass for the first time in public, on songs he's never played before!
    should be interesting...
