The truss rod is NOT used to adjust the action. It is used to add or remove "relief", or bow, to the neck. To check the relief quickly, hold down a string at the first and last frets. There should be between .15 and .5 mm of space between the string and the 7th fret. Some people like more, it's relief a personal preference thing. If you have too much space, turn the truss rod 1/4 turn clockwise, let it sit for 20 minutes, and remeasure. Repeat if necessary but always let the neck sit and never turn the rod more than 1/4 turn at a time. Turn it counterclockwise to add relief (if there isn't enough of a bow).
