Re: Trussrod adjusting tool!
simply, the metals used in truss rods and the nut arent that great, they retain tension and length by spec, but when you tighten it under a full tune its eats away at the threads more than without a tension..and it doesnt matter what you guys THINK, i had a couple carvins, and i listen to them, they have some of the best techs and even my tech dan torres said the same thing
along with tensioning the nut without a full tension on the neck it is also wise to adjust it with no tension because you get more true or releif with the neck when the strings are not in tune..just that when you have strings in tune and you turn the nut yoiu get little to no efect compared to doing it without a tune the smallest adjustment makes a huge difference, and it doesnt aclimate too far over and need another readjustment
and all the tech ive ever talked to have always told me the same thing
each and every one
