Some help with my S3040

Hey there. I have a JCS3040 and theres two nuts on the back of the neck by the headstock. What are those for ? I noticed today cause I was about to start adjusting the truss rod to get some of the bow out of my neck. I did not start though because once I seen those nuts I wasn't sure of there purpose or there relation to truss neck relief. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

The ones that hold the nut on and should always be kept quite snug?

Im not sure. My RG1570, RG8570z, and RG20127 doesn't have them. Im not sure what they do . Im afraid to adjust the truss rod until i make sure they aren't related to it.

Hi Lorper,

Some nuts are secured from the top of the neck (the fretboard side), which I believe your other guitars have, and some are secured from behind the nut. They have nothing to do with the truss rod - just for securing the nut. Here is a pic of a nut assembly that secures from the back of the neck;

I hope that helps you out.
