DUDE< READ THE DIRECTIONS>> DONT TURN THE ROD>

read the friggin directions and post back.

turning the rod can break your neck.


Quote by BassMidTreb
sounds like you need to slacken the truss rod and allow more neck relief


and you know what. if he breaks his neck it's on you, because you saw that i gave him instructions and you still chose to post.

TS. Listen to Jenny (jj1565). She knows what she's talking about.

Don't adjust the Truss Rod unless you're completely sure you know what you're doing.


You can call me Aaron.

^Lol.

thanks Aaron, i was getting upset, but i'm cool right now.


Icedog: please, please, just look at the link. fret the first and last on the Low E and tell me if you can fit a credit card in the middle gap.
it's all written right there in the first post.

once you know what's going on wt your neck, then post back.

i'm not saying you need to adjust anything else today, i just want to get an idea of what's going on wt your neck.

in addition, it would help to know the type of bridge.

ok well, if you have more than a credit cards thickness, then it's possible you have too much gap right now.

what gauge do you have on there now?

and that's not a bolt on neck is it?

do you think the 12th fret is a little raised?

how old are the strings?

oh ok, i thought you were just saying it was good enough, because you were trying to end the nightmare of this thread.
