    Hey all, I got a little too low of action on the first few frets of my JS2450. Possibly from the climate change here. I want to adjust the truss slightly but want to make sure I'm turning the right way. Can someone confirm... LEFTY Loosens the Truss bringing the neck forward RiGHTY tightens...

    I didn't want to start a new thread but I'm not sure exactly who to ask for this- I'm switching from 9-42 gauge strings to 9-46. How much of a truss adjustment should I make to compensate? Quarter turn, full turn, etc? I'm horrible at gauging truss stuff. I'm scared sh*tless of the rod.

    Here is a quick video I just finished on adjusting the truss rod. Thanks for watching!!!

    Well, that. I'm tunning down my RG a half step down. Common sense indicates that the less string tension would need less truss rod tension to compensate, so I loosened it a really REALLY tiny bit. Am I right? And also (I dont want to create another thread), during what seasons do you make...

    I'm attempting to tune my new Jem 7VWH down to Eb. When I did it loosened the tension on the bridge (obviously) and pulled the angle back some. I want to straighten it out and get the proper string tension back but figured I should poll the experts first! I know I have to adjust the truss rod...

    Hello all. I've got a new RG1570 and I'm doing my first full set up. I want to set action as low as I can since it's pretty high from factory. The bass side buzzes in the first 5 frets, correct me if I'm wrong but I should adjust the truss rod and the adjust the trem height right? (less relief...

    I have my action on my JEM7VWH to about 1.8mm from the 24th fret. I notice a lot of buzzing all over the place. I then measured the neck bow and it's about .279mm (.011") at the 7th fret. Should I get some more bow in my neck?

    I recently picked up a really decent condition old square heeled neck and set about attaching it to a body I had lying around. I do not know how long this neck had been unattached to a guitar, but it looked fairly straight. So I attached it, wired it, and strung it up. My intent was for this...
