    I bought this about a year ago because I was going to be traveling a lot for work. It served me well, but my job has changed back to an office job, and it is just sitting around. I bought it here on TB, and here is the original thread:

    SOLD - STEINBERGER Synapse Headless 5-String Project w/Gig Bag - Gloss Black

    I took it to a recommended repair shop here in San Diego, and after paying $120, it is a bit better than when I received it, but I don't think they were as good as my friend thought they were. For example, when I picked it up, they had it tuned B-G, even though I told them it was strung E-C. They told me I was wrong until they checked the gauges on the strings. So, I am selling for what I paid for it, even though I'm in it for more. If you have a good repair shop, it should be no big deal to make better. The action is stable, and a bit higher than I like, but still quite playable. Strings are new (E-C). Case is a bit worn, but not bad. It has a ding (shown), and slight wear and tear, but it is still very solid. If you have questions, let me know. Price is shipped to lower 48.

    I'm not sure. Once I got it back, I just played it. I don't adjust truss rods, and I'm not going to try on this one. I have it priced low, same as I purchased it, thinking someone would take it somewhere and have it looked at. I think you just need a good repair person with experience in truss rods.
