I restringed my squier strat with 10-52's, and now the neck is too much bowed.

Which way do I turn the rod ? And anything else I should be aware of?

^he wasn't asking if he needed adjustment, he is asking which way to turn it. TS: Look up the user's manual on the internet, that will explain everything.

By the way, turn it VERY LITTLE, no more than 1/4 inch.

You CAN play anything with anything....but some guitars sound right for some things, and not for others. Single coils sound retarded for metal, though those who are apeshit about harpsichord probably beg to differ.

dont crank that thing.


you need to know how much you want to move the neck and make no more than 1/4" turn, which is a very small amount.

dont force the turn, and check to make sure your bridge isnt lifted FIRST.

Clockwise when the guitar is turning towards the clock with the head first, or the body?

I can see that the neck is bowed. It used to be different with 09-42 strings anyway, and I didn't change anything.

But again, clockwise with head towards the clock, or body?

yeah, first fret the Low E at the first fret, at the same time,
fret the Low E at the last fret where the neck and body meet.

with both places held, look at the middle frets.

if there is MORE that a credit cards thickness between the string and middle frets, then note the difference.

slacken the strings a small amount, and turn CLOCKWISE, 1/4".

it's important to measure first, so you know your starting point and how far u would like to go.

TUNE THE GUITAR. then let it sit. it'll settle thru the day.

adjust more tomorrow if needed.


edit: clockwise, look down at the wrench, the handle is the arm of a clock, turn the handle the way a clock's arm moves.
