    I'm wondering if I can take off the screw of the truss rod for lubrication from my Fender Sting Precision since its somehow stiff and hard to move easily.

    Describe exactly how you adjust it. Do you loosen the strings first? Any petroleum or liquid lubricant is likely to soften or damage the wood—which is obviously bad. I have never met a Fender truss rod that wasn't pretty tough to turn, and no I don't take the neck off to adjust it.
