    That's pretty funny. I've learned almost everything I know about basses from this forum (and I'm very thankful) and I find you guys to be very nice and helpful. Obviously there is people that don't know how to benefit from the amount of resources this web page has to offer...

    You forgot to mention in your last bit of advice to turn one clock-wise and the other counter clock-wise. For maximum tonal mix cutting, that is. :D

    This guy was going to buy Adrian's MTD 635 for $2800?

  10. One would think that someone so knowledgeable would know that one of the truss rods was a spare. Sigh!

  11. Okay...I turned the truss rod until it can't move anymore. Now what Hambone?
  12. Ah but to help it cut in the mixdown - you need to adjust the low mids up to full, and cut back everything else!

    That is once you've adjusted the truss rods accordingly!:D :D
  13. Yeah, that's the first thing that hit me when I saw the thread that Hambone linked. Yowzers!

    Total side note: Mr. Castelo, your new avatar is extremely cool. I love River City Ransom!

    And y'know, Truss Rods are the LAST thing I'd go to looking for action...saddles first, I mean, that's just me.

    Actually looking at that thread - there is no blame to Hambone - but PKR2 is being very rude and patronising to this poster. I mean I know I'd do the same - but I would get loads of flak for it! ;)
  18. and the moral of the story is...

    " if it is not broken, do not attempt to fix it "
