    This is a slightly stupid question, but hey...
    Where can I find the thruss rod? Also, can I seriously harm the bass by turning it?

    I have an Ibanez Soundgear. Not sure which model.

    The truss rod running inside the neck of the bass. You should be able to adjust it by taken the neck of your body. Some have a spokewheel adjuster which makes it possible to adjust whithout removing it from the body. And yes, you can do serious harm to the bass if you over turn it. If you haven't got any experience, I would say contact a guy who knows about this and let him show you. Normally you should only tweak the truss rod a 1/4 turn at a time. Are you trying to get more or less relief?

    If you need to ask where it is (and how to spell it :)), you probably don't need to be adjusting it. YES you can destroy your bass with improper adjustment of the truss rod.

    Do a quick search using "truss rod" as the key word.

    The neck is bent upwards. I'll go see my cousin about it. Thanks for the help. If I do a quicksearch, it takes a lot more time to filter through all the crap. This is simply quicker.

    Let me make sure that I understand what you are saying. Your time is too valuable to waste doing a search for what already has been posted but our time spent answering your questions is worth nothing.

    Mmmmm. OK!
