Hi Guys, I just bought a 1978 Jetglo 4001... but the action is sitting a bit too high for my tastes. Can someone here give me some advice as to what would be the safest way to go about adjusting this at home? Im not saying that I am going to at this point I know its more of a challenge to get it right without popping off the fretboard, and I have minimal expeirience with making adjustments. But I am curious as to how some of you go about doing it yourself (if any of you do). Meaning ... How much to tweak the rod initially, or how do you apply the pressure to the neck and make the adjustment .... things like that. any comments are welcome thanks - Tom BTW, this was sent to me from a Friend, its from John Hall CEO of RIC "Old-style rods are a whole different story in themselves - doing them wrong can cause the fingerboard to separate from the neck down by the nut."*** "This is absolutely true and for the most simple of reasons.* The old style truss rod requires that the person doing the adjustment pushes the neck into position and only THEN turns the truss rods to snug up the tension to hold that setting. The old rods were not designed to actually move the neck only hold it in place after manually moving it. When tightened without releasing pressure from moving the neck, most of the energy of the rods is directed to popping off the fingerboard. It's a good system when you know how to use it, but unfortunately many people didn't understand it."
