1. Welcome to TalkBass 2014! If you're new here, we just went through a major site upgrade. Please make yourself at home! I've deleted the previous "migration" threads, please post all concerns and bugs to the Forum Usage Issues forum. We will be monitoring that forum.

    The TalkBass iphone/android app is NOT WORKING currently. We're working on it. Tapatalk IS working, so if you need to use an app, use Tapatalk. Try using your browser though - TalkBass is now 100% responsive to your phone/tablet screen size ;)

    Please read the TalkBass 2014 FAQ for lots of great info on the new software.

    I posted this question in the bass forum and should have tried here. I have a '81 G&L L1000 and would like to know if there is a repair to loosen the truss rod. It works and will loosen but to get the neck almost straight you have to tighten the rod all the way. Is there a way to get more out of the adjustment? Thanks!
