i do not have a truss rod wrench to adjust the rod in my les paul. Is there any other tool I can use? I have allen wrenches and sockets but they are not for guitar...
Truss rods just use a regular allen wrench. Not sure which size though. Try the ones you have until one fits.
ok i have loosened my truss rod and turned it counterclock wise and I believe this puts relief in the neck. Ok well why are the strings now tuned higher than before I adjusted it? when you put relief in the neck doesn't it suppose to detune the strings some?

i know truss rod has nothing to do with tuning strings but I just found it odd
