    So as the subject states, i got clacking going on when I dont play softly. So does this mean I need to raise the action at the bridge or adjust the truss rod letting the neck curve more toward the strings? I adjusted the truss rod to spec after winter came (we practice in a warehouse that is around 55 degrees when its cold)

    Hey,

    I'd say loosen the truss rod 1/8 - 1/4th of a turn to compensate for temperature changes. Action at the bridge should be fine.
