Just got a 6 string Grecco bass shipped from USA and it came with 2 truss rods on the head with all strings lowered (for shipping?) which gives fret buzz rapidly. I need to raise them back. Like you’ve adviced I ‘d turn allen keys clock wise to raise the action? My problem is as there are 2 truss rods lying parrelal to each other, how should I do this. Half turn of one and similar turn on the other? Your advice ‘d be of much help as I’d not get any luthier around in this part of the region. Thanks in advance.
Best regards
UC

I have made several electric guitars. Anywhy, here is my question. I was sculpting the body and I may have carved to much…what is the distance from the bridge to the 12th fret

I just stumble on your blog. Terrific! Linked it at mine. I’ve been playing for 23 plus years and am still, and will always be, a student of the thing.

Happy Bass’ing

Mike @ Sonicfrog Blog.

I am not touching anything if they are near by. But if you are traveling town to town, in and out of the humidity you have to be able to lean on the rods or you are screwed.

Great post!

Truss rod is definitely the big scary one, and the one that most people get (badly) wrong – including me when I was a teenager. It’s a little different than just adjusting the intonation isn’t it? :)

I let the pro’s do that.
