So I read like ten websites on adjusting the rod, and all of them had warnings, anyway, I found that my neck is too straight, and needs more relief, but when I try to turn the TS counter-clockwise, I get a popping sound as if it's breaking out of glue or something, now I won't force it since it's a glued on neck and breaking that would suck for me, A LOT. Did I have to lubricate it with something?

For now, I won't mess with it, and the only real close guitar store near me is called Imperial Guitars, and IDK what exactly they do.

If I don't get a decent answer, can someone tell me how much/long does the avg. setup take?

The reason I'm even touching the thing is because I have fret buzz, and no distance between fret and string on the relief test.

Sounds like it's sticking. I'm of the opinion that if there's an issue like this, it's worth getting a tech to do it. I adjust the necks on my guitars, but if there's any issues, I like to know that I'm insured for any damage.
