Trussrod problems

Discussion in 'Hardware, Setup & Repair [BG]' started by i_got_a_mohawk, Dec 3, 2005.

  1. On 2 of my basses, my EDA and my ATK ( :( ) the truss rod wont seem to turn, is there anything that can be dont about this?

    I was going to take it in and let the guys at the shop that does repairs do it, but was talking to them, and if it wont turn with reasonable force then theres nothing they can do :scowl:

    I dont know what you do about them, there surely must be something that can be done :confused:

    Ah yes, I'd try a drop or two of oil designed to 'defreeze' bolts...let it sit for a bit then try to loosen the trussrod nut.

    Did you have any luck with the trussrod on this????

    I am having the same problem with my 1306. (It must be an Ibanez thing!) The trussrod won't tighten or loosen.

    Nevermind!!! I just tried the oil thing. I used Red Lion Penetrating Oil and let it set for about 20 minutes. The trussrod turned like a charm!

    Thanks TBers.
