Hey guys, which way do you turn the allen key to raise the strings? I am afraid of breaking my guitar neck. SOS!
#2
You wont break the neck... LOL

Anti clockwise to raise I think.

If your adjusting the truss rod to adjust the height, why not try doing so at the bridge first?

Actually, if he was talking about the bridge, then why would he be worried about breaking the neck?

If you would like to adjust your action, then you would need to adjust the saddles on your bridge. To lower them, turn the allen key in the socket clockwise. To raise it, turn it counterclockwise.

You are suppose to detune first if you were to raise the action by a lot.

You are the only person ever to screw up your bridge whilst adjusting your action.

Thats what I'm guessing, if not, he's slackened it a bit 2 much and it's popped up a bit.
