today, I put some new heavy guage strings on my bass.
they were originaly 45-95 gauge and the new ones are 50-110.
my friend said I might need to move the truss rod slightly to stop them bending my neck. will i need to or not?

I think you need to stop caring what people think about it. I stayed home all day today and masturbated like 5 times. Fucking blast.

if the new strings changed your action(height of strings from fretboard), then maybe
a truss adjustment is needed. it's really up to your preferences. look at this site to learn about setting up a bass. http://www.tunemybass.com/bass_setup/

I spent a couple of hours setting up the inotation on my bass the other day.

What im saying is you can set your bass up anyway, its allways good to make adjustments, to improve playability.
