Have an Ibanez 5 string. Truss rod slips or is broken. String tension changes. What do I do.
What do you mean it slips?
Thanks for reply. It feels like the Nut???? or whatever it is in the bottom of the neck is turning and it doesn't stay in tune (neck is moving someway)
Yikes! If this is the case the easiest solution is probably going to be a new neck.
To replace the truss rod is a nightmare for the average person.
Try to eliminate all other possible problems to be sure it is the truss rod.
Take it to a good tech, or to a luthier. They will at least be able to tell you how much it might cost to repair.
If the adjustment nut is slipping there is a chance it could be fixed without spending more than the bass is worth. But, if it's more of an issue with the anchor nut (the one on the end you can't access) you may have a much bigger problem
