Please help on Modulus Flea neck again !

Discussion in 'Basses [BG]' started by MRPaulFunk, Jun 5, 2012.

  1. i just wanted to make the neck have no relief (Straight neck)
    i tighten the trussrod many many time, it doesn't move.
    and when i tighten it, is kindda not resist my hand, i have to turn it 5 times in a roll to make it a littlebit resist my hand, then when i go up for another round it loosen again, so is like this.

    **notice** i turn 5 times in one round because the rod is not resisting, i guess is ok to turn it five time in a roll.

    first quarter > Loosen
    second quarter > Loosen
    third quarter > littlebit resist
    forth quarter > littlebit resist
    fifth quarter > Loosen

    then wait and play it for about 10 min.

    and check if is move....notting, but i also heard about a Modulus neck system that only and loosen it. or maybe is

    thanks for reading all of this, bless to all TB nice user. :D

    Problem should be somewhere within the collective of these:
    -- piece of crap/quality problems
    -- stripped-out threads
    -- could use a professional setup.
    That's my start.

    While looking directly at the truss rod, remember righty righty and Lefty loosley. If you're telling me that's what you did, then your truss-rod is probably broken. There's no way you could make 5 revolutions on the truss rod, and have no movement in he neck. Unless its broken.

    Are your bridge saddles set ridiculously high?
  7. have no idea where should i start, lol

    kinda serious stuff, and for sure it don't have in the place i'm living: (

    or graphite neck is hard to adjust? , or maybe it need an extra turn ?.

    is pretty low, actually is buzzing little bit if i played deep in the neck.

    If you are getting five full turns on the truss rod, it is probably broken, or the threads are stripped. Time to take it to a professional.
    Good luck.

    This. Especially since you mention it has no resistance when turning it.

    FYI: You should really only be turning it 1/4 turn at a time. Otherwise you risk breaking it.
