fixing neck warp

Discussion in 'Hardware, Setup & Repair [BG]' started by Discrepancy, Mar 30, 2004.

  1. Im sorry if i alreay posted this before, or if its in the wrong place, but i got no response before. The neck on my OLP Stingray is warped a little, causeing the strings to rattle on the lower frets. its warping twards the strings near the middle. I know i have to adjust the truss rod one way or another, but im not sure how much or which way. The thing to adjust it is at the end of the neck on the body. Can anyone give me some advice?

    Check the setup forum, but..

    Turn the truss rod counter clockwise, to loosen it, therefore adding more relief.
  3. thanks for the tips. My truss rod looks like it needs some kind of special tool, not an allen wrench. I tired useing hte one from my other bass, but it wont fit.

    More than likely someone in the setup forum will know what you need. They are unbelievably helpful there. Thanks to them I now do my own setups (with advice from them when needed). Go there. You won't be disappointed.
