If this is in the wrong place please move. Got an ibanez sr305 a while back and the neck was slightly back bowed when I received it but couldn't return it at the time as I had gigs I needed to use this bass on, couldn't go without it and had no back up. I can turn the truss rod to the left slightly to loosen it but after about half a turn it gets really loose,no tension turning it at all. Keeping it at this state pretty much puts the bass at 0 relief and I still have the saddles at what I would consider slightly high level to keep buzz to a tolerable level. The truss rod will tighten after a few turns the tension comes back but obviously tightening will worsen the problem. So my question is am I pretty much screwed? Just buy some heavy gauge strings to get more relief?
