This probably seems like a bit an
sort of question, but: I have this old beater yamaha bass I'd like do a set up on, because the current one is atrocious.
I've never done a set up before, and all the videos and guides use basses with truss rods at the nut. This bass has it at the other end however near the pickups.
The strings when I do the whole capo on the first fret deal are touching the frets, so I need to loosen(?) the truss rod. Which way do i turn it? Is it counter clockwise like on a nut access one, or clockwise because its at the other end?
