    Hi,

    I will be playing at the South By Southwest Festival in Austin, TX on March 16.

    As the SKB Bassafe I ordered 6 weeks ago does not semm to be arriving on time, I considered taking off the neck.

    I will be taking my G&L Tribute 2500. The bass will be in 2 pieces for about 24 hours.

    What about the trussrod? Does it need to be loosened? If yes, how much?

    The bass will be reassembled 24 hours before the gig.

    Any experience on this?
