    Like the title says, I have a chance to buy a 2007 Corvette $$ 5. The seller says the bass is playable but the truss rod turns freely. Is it possible that it could have come unscrewed all the way or more probable that it is broken?

    Any advice would be appreciated.

    If the trussrod is broken it is really difficult and expensive to replace.
    The trussrod is the 2way one, it means it has a few free tuns in the center. Ask him to turn it a few times CW, and if it doesn't engage don't buy it please, unless it it a project bass for a very good price

    Stay away from this bass, I'm almost 100% certain you are referring to the one on Reverb...
