Great video. I dared to adjust the truss rod on my Strat after watching this and few other videos.

If you are going to do this yourself, be VERY careful with that trussrod wrench. If you move it just a notch you can see the neck move, so too much could easialy snap it.

Yes only make small adjustments, and if your not sure take up some advice from a tech/luither.

Great video!
Btw his strings are so low, almost on a fretboard ohmy.gif I got buzz every time when I get those pretty low, so I leave those medium\high position mellow.gif
Bondy do you have any problems with string buzz on your Jackson? Probably not. I heard that cheaper Jackson`s tend to buzz all the time ..

No Problems just wanted the action a little lower, and i have already droped the height of my flloyd. I followed his checks though, and the clearance was spot on so I'm gonna leave it. biggrin.gif

I am trying to adjust the truss rod on my acoustic but it seems that it is stuck. I am afraid to turn it all at this point. Has anyone experienced a stiff truss rod?
