I recently put skinny top heavy bottom strings on my Ibanez GRG170DX. The thicker strings caused the bridge to arch off the body so i took the back of and added an extra spring to keep it down.

Now the problem is i think the extra pressure arched the neck. At the first fret the string is about 1 or 2mm off the neck but by the 12th it is a good 5 or 6mm.

Any way to fix this apart from adjusting the truss rod? If it comes to that do i turn it clockwise or anti clockwise?

Thanks for any help.
if you never did it before yourself ask a friend to help you or someone at some shop...
