Im adjusting the truss rod on my Schecter C1-Hellraiser, I'd like to know how much arch it should have. It was bending back slightly, but how much should it arch forward? I know some people like it perfectly straight, what is the advantage? Pictures would be helpful, thanks.

just keep going until it is as close as you can get it, and none of the notes hum. i had the same problem. there is a bit more arch on my neck than other guitars, but i also have my tremolo system down in the body quite a ways. try searching on youtube for a good video.

if you don't know what you're doing, don't do it you could end up trashing the neck. Take it to a shop to get it done

From what I understand, it should have a very slight bow to it. and I mean slight as in you can hardly notice.

Neck takes a while to settle. Maybe it is staight now, it will be backbowed 30 minutes later. Don't adjust too much.

Fret the 1st and the 12th fret on the last string, the space between the string and fret should be just enough for a credit card to slide in.
