I have just changed the strings on my bass and have a slightly lighter gauge than before. Now when i check my neck curve i find my gap between fretboard and string while holding 1st and 16th is slightly LESS than 0.6mm. Which way should i turn my truss to adjust for this? i assume i want to TIGHTEN it which means turning CLOCKWISE?

that right - thanks for help

really - i thought the truss went down the backside of the neck to counteract the string tension - so surely to get more bow in it i want to.... loosen it - damn my logic is shot today. :$

we all have our days.

I found my ipod after a month without today. mostly due to my CD player breaking.

oh how sad
I wish my CD player worked, I could listen to my Aerosmith again

good luck with the rod. btw, don't twist a lot, just a bit at a time.

Don't go crazy with the adjustment, try 1/4 turn at a time, with the back of the neck facing you place one hand round the neck half way down and the other on the headstock and apply a little ( remember LITTLE) quick foreward pressure to the back of the headstock, this will take up any slack adjustment due to the release of tension on the truss rod.
