    What kind of adjustments do I have to make to the neck when I change strings gauge? and do I have to make adjustments on grafitti necks or just in wood ones? tkx :cool:
     
  2. First, change the strings and see if you actually need to adjust the neck.

    You set your strings so they won't buzz and the intonation, all this will determine if the neck relief has to be adjusted.

    Yes, all necks have truss rods(including graphite) and can be adjusted.
