hey, i have an ibanez RGT42DX, and i hired a proffesional painter to give it some vanhalen stripes ( yes i know its an ibanez.... ) But i have to remove all of the strings for the painting and i was wondering if that would ruin the kneck because of the truss rod + missing tension from the strings?

you shouldn't mess with the truss rod. the neck will be absolutly fine if u take the strings off trust me.

you should take the hardware and neck off when painting anyway.

Sorry for hijacking, but if I remove a bolt-on neck from a guitar, will it screw with the neck or truss rod?

removing the neck/strings wont change anything in the truss rod.. temperature is the main factor in this. Unless you like drop it or something

I always wondered if removing the neck would impact the truss rod setting ... thanks. I'll be painting my project guitar in the spring when it warms up outside, so I'll be removing all the hardware. Coolio.
