hey Now, i'm just curious as the what sort of neck relief i should be looking for on my bass, i mainly play standard tuning with medium gauge strings. When i sight the neck, i can clearly see a bow in the neck. Fretting on the 1st and 14th frets leaves a gap at the 6th fret about the size of a plastic credit card or maybe just more, is this normal or excessive?? also, how hard should it be to adjust the truss rod?? i had a quick go on mine, but it was damn near impossible to even move slightly, so i gave up before i wreaked something.
