Overtightened neck screws?
basically I just want to know how you can find out if you overtightened the screws that hold the neck in the neckpocket?
I removed the neck on my UV777BK to clean it up. The screws were on there very tight already and I put them back on really really tight (what that means is basically that I turned them until they stopped and would not turn any more (duh) - I didnt use brute force but still a strong grip).
So now I keep reading "do not OVERtighten" blah blah... and that the wood can be compressed and so on.
The guitar seems fine and I didnt notice anything bad, but am worried that maybe due to climate change it could crack or... well I dont know, thats why Im asking if I should be worried or all is good as long as I didnt break anything.
Would it be better maybe to loosen the screws a little and screw them back in with a somewhat softer grip? Or would that do more harm than good due to friction (the screws wearing out the wood of the neck by doing so?). Should I just leave it as is?
Oh btw Im in Florida, so the climate is hot and we usually have high humidity (in case that makes a difference).
Id appreciate it if somebody could shed some light on this, this is really buggin me right now.
