neck stability issue....no strings on for a night

Discussion in 'Hardware, Setup & Repair [BG]' started by thehangingmist, Mar 14, 2008.


  1. would the neck (action-truss rod) go bonkers if i leave my bass without any strings on for 12-18hours?
    i have a squier jazz bass whose neck has been very stable in the past......

    yeah, I left my fender without strings for about 2 nights while I was refinishing the body. As long as the humidity and temp stay relatively the same, you shouldn't have too much trouble. Keep in mind though, that once you put your strings back on, it may take another night for the neck to readjust itself, which means you may have to adjust the truss and intonation a little bit afterwards.
     
  4. allright...thanks
