Picture would help, I don't get what you mean by the strings being lifted off the bridge is your neck bent or maybe you just need new strings?

how much did you tighten the rod at once?

you really, really, really shouldn't tighten it lots at once.

I can't really picture how the strings can be lifted off the bridge without the neck being off at a huge angle....

pics?
