    Hi all,

    I want to reduce the relief on a used OLP MM2 bass I just picked up. I'm familiar with setting up basses, but the truss rod on the OLP is 'different'.

    Is there a specific tool to put in those holes to adjust the rod?

    And which way ( if you're looking at the bass in a standup vertical position) would I turn the wheel to increase or decrease relief?

    No specific tool. Just use a screw driver or something rigid that will fit and won't bend when you turn the wheel. If you're looking at the bass (vertically as you said), you would turn the wheel to the left to add relief, turn it right to decrease it.
