If you bought used thru ebay etc, return. If you can't trun it by hand it's f'd.

Re: Truss Rod Jammed. (Too tight to turn)

If this is a new guitar I suggest an immediate return. If you bought used thru ebay etc, return. If you can't trun it by hand it's f'd. you're either going to round out the truss rod end, but more likely you're going to snap the rod.

If you can't return it, vou'd have to clamp in into backbow and then try and tighten it.
