    I need to loosen the trussrod on my acoustic bass. My question is: with the nut at the bottom of the fretboard (in the body of the bass) as opposed to at the headstock like I'm used to, which way do I turn the allen wrench? If I would usually turn the allen wrench counter clockwise at the headstock to loosen it, does that mean that looking at it from below do I turn it clockwise? I'm confused. If someone could provide a clear explanation I'd appreciate it. Thanks.

    Clockwise tightens it. If you had looked in the ALL TRUSSROD AND ACTION QUESTIONS ANSWERED HERE!!! topic at the sticky area on this forum... you'd know that. :-\
