    Double action trussrods vary in design but it you want to reduce relief (tightening a conventional single rod) generally you would turn counter clock.

    No, it would be clockwise.

    Last time I was in Aussie, I spend hours just watching water go down the drain. That's what probably messed you up.

    if you aren't sure just use a tuner. from the playing position: neck arches back, pitch goes up. neck dips forward, pitch goes down.
