A good while back I started detecting some buzz on my strings, so I adjusted the truss road and for the most part things went back to normal -except for a distinct buzz when playing minor chords- and recently I find that I have to constantly tune my guitar DOWN.... Yeah, I know, usually they go the completely opposite way, but this happens after I leave my guitar sitting for a while (could be several hours or even days) I'll find that when tuning before I start practicing my strings are actually getting SHARP... worst of all sometimes even when I'm playing they'll go a bit on the higher end and I'll have to re-tune them.

Also I must mention that the guitar in question is a cheap starter-set Ibanez that I got about 4 years ago. So is this simply the result of poor craftsmanship on the guitar, a result of my tinkering with the truss rod or a completely separate problem? And of course, how could I fix this?

Which way did you turn the truss rod when you adjusted it, Clockwise or counter clockwise?
Always tin your strings.

Don't be afraid to be honest.

well I loosened it so I guess counter clockwise, how would that affect cause the problem with my tuning?

how far did you turn it? Also have you changed the way you string your guitar? and is the weather changed dramatically since you changed the truss rod? i ask that one because cold temps can cause the strings to sharpen when left.

Well if the neck is overbowed it might effect the tuning/buzzing. As for the pitch getting higher... I don't even think physics work that way.

EDIT: The only thing I can think of, is if the neck is angled too far back, and overbowed, the tuning could slip higher, in which case, the guitar is pretty screwed.
