I think i jacked up my guitar.

What if there is no tension on my truss rod?? The relief seems to be perfect, but when I turn the truss rod on my guitar, it has no resistance. I think I messed it up, cause I was foolin around with the neck relief one night, and all the sudden it had no tension. (like the truss rod is more than finger loose) God... I should have left it the way Rich had sent it to me....

or.. does it matter if the truss rod is completely loose, but the relief is good?

It's all pretty much right here:


What a coincidence, huh?

Took the day off

I never leave a truss nut loose, I'll turn it until it's at least in contact with the base, but if maximum relief is good it's not going to be tight
