    Looking for Help on how I can possibly fix my bass neck's action, my truss rod nut is stripped, and the action is a bit high, is it a good idea to loosen the truss rod and remove the nut?

    I hope you understand that the truss rod is not for adjusting the string height - it's for getting the neck relief right. But assuming you know that already, I would slacken the strings, remove the truss rod nut and replace it.
