    Hey bass fam, am a bit scared about what I'm seeing on my bass and I hope y'all can help me. My yamaha trb 6ii Has a small bump on its neck(circled in green) which is not visible but you can feel it and somehow I get the feeling its one of the truss rod(dual truss rod), some guy tampered with my neck and thats what has happened , i personally had to loosen and it gave a relief sound like it was tied super hard. Am fearing that this bump could later split open ☹️☹️ but so far it doesn't look like it could open up. Please help with some solutions

    At this point about all you can do is keep monitoring it and watch for a crack. If it does crack, loosen the truss rod and address the crack immediately. Waiting to repair a crack just allows dust and dirt in the crack so it becomes more apparent.

    And it makes the repair more difficult to do. Unless the dirt is cleaned out any repair is likely to fail.
