    I have a fender jazz deluxe & it came with the T wrench tool for adjusting the trust rod.

    The question is which way do I turn the wrench if the neck is bowed or back-bowed?

    Think of it like this -

    When you tighten the truss rod, you're pulling the neck against the pressure of the strings.
