It drives me nuts. I have a tele with the truss-rod adjustment screw at the heel end. To adjust the truss rod, I have to de-tune the strings, remove the pick-guard, pull out the neck pickup (Which doesn't quite come out far enough to clear the high E string, re-tune the guitar, set the truss rod, detune the strings, and pretty much re-build the whole damn thing. Ha anyone ever come up with a solution for this? I'm sure I've seen some guitars with a notch routed at the heel of the neck, and the adjustment screw has been replaced with one with holes around its circumference so you can insert something, turn it a little, then move it over to the next hole. Is there such thing as an after-market replacement I can get? It's the dumbest piece of design I've seen in a guitar. Did Leo Fender not play? If possible, I'd like to convert it to headstock end adjustment, but I doubt that's even possible. It wouldn't be on any of the truss rods I've seen. They all have a little bar welded onto the non-adjusting end. Surely some bright spark has created a work-around on this?
