Alright. Here's the deal. I looked at my neck yesterday, and it was bowed ungodly. So I got the allen out, and torqued the truss rod till I felt resistance. Then I stopped, and tightened the strings up to playing tightness. Still way too bowed. So I let it acclaimate, and played it for half an hour when I got home today. Then I took the string tension off, and worked it again until I felt resistance. I think one more tightening like the other two aught to get it. Two at the most. Question is, can the neck take the pressure? I am giving it 24 hours between an adjustment. I really don't want what the topic implies here. Please help out.
