Help with Jackson Truss Rod

Hey Guys,

Hoping some of you might have some ideas on how to help me out. I have a Jackson USA made guitar, neck thru and I have been using 10's on the guitar for about 10 years now.

The action is very low and the neck is almost dead straight. I wanted to add a little more relief to the neck when I noticed that the truss rod was all the way loose and no more relief can be added through the truss rod.

Someone suggested that I put on a set of 12's, tune it very sharp and leave it like that for awhile to see if the neck starts to move a little, adding more relief.

Any other ideas or things I can try myself? Anyone else had this issue before?

Thanks for any help!
