Truss rod nut won't move... RIC content
Hey guys, apprciate some help!
I have a 2011 RIC 4003. In the spring, I had a tech do an adjustment of the truss rods on the bass. All seemed fine.
As my band was taking the summer off, I kinda did the same and didn't touch the RIC for about 2 months. (I know, bad me!) I pulled it out of it's case the other day only to find that the bass had gone into back-bow. I had to assume that the summers humidity had affected the neck.
So, I thought, I can give the rods a quick adjustment, lower the rod tension a 1/4 turn and let it sit. The low side of the neck's rod nut turned easily, the high side nut turned slightly then just locked right up. As a matter of fact, it won't turn at all, either way.
Could the rod threads need some lubrication? That's my first thought.
Any advice prior to me once again getting a tech to have a look?
