buddhuu Guitar Truss rod adjustments (49) RE: Guitar Truss rod adjustments 09 Jun 10

Where the feck do people get their ideas?

Frank Ford's site is very good. His advice is mostly excellent.

That said, if you are even a tiny bit uncertain then don't touch the truss rod. Just take it into the shop and let a pro do it.

On my £100 Chinese acoustic I tweak the rod with confidence as and when I need to (which is actually hardly ever). On a Martin I would be very careful and a little nervous.

Take it to a decent guitar tech. The adjustment, if it is just the rod, will be quick and cheap - and if done by a pro it will also be safe.
