97 Streamer II, Truss Rod Help Please!
oh my god, I could spit right now.
changed strings on my Streamer stage II. noticed a little bow in the neck so, per the owners manual for a post -96 bass, I gave it a counter clockwise twist to take the relief out.
Hmm, that turned easy....
tighten strings back up, the bow is now worse. "okay, I thought, truss rods on these things can be a little wonky" so I turned it the other way, relief was back to where I started. Okay, lets go a little futher.... Won't budge....
MAXED out truss rod? I just got this bass used a couple of months ago, no mention of that.
So then think, okay, its a two way trussrod. I've heard sometimes you've gotta go the other way, maybe clockwise was right, maybe it'll tighten up again.... Nope, truss rod not comes right out of the bass. Now I can't get it threaded back on no matter what.
Meanwhile, I've got a useless SSII.
