Truss Rod Problems...temperature change is the cause?
I have a Custom Shop Schecter that was professionally set up a couple months ago. During the last set up, snow was on the ground; currently, it's around 70 degrees, and has been for about a week. I think that maybe this is affecting my guitar's truss rod (?).
It has a mahogany set neck and ebony fretboard. It's set up for string gauges 10-46, and it has a tune-o-matic bridge. I'm experiencing a slight fret buzz from the open string up to about the 8th fret, and it's especially bad on the low E string. Looking at the guitar vertically, there is a slight bow, which I know is how you want it to be, but I'm starting to think that maybe the bow is too pronounced and that is what's causing my problems.
Could this be adjusted with a slight action change? I've also been told that might nut is cut too deeply.
Just need a little direction, please. I can post pics of the guitar if needed.
