in which direction to move truss rod in a mtd 535

  1. I just wanted to be sure before making any adjustment in which direction to move the truss rod in a mtd 535 to set neck relief.

    Thanks.

    Yep, should be the same as any other bass (except for the adjusment tool, which is awesome). Turn the truss rod right to make less relief (straighten the fingerboard), and turn to the left to loosen or add more relief.
