I'm of the opinion that swearing adds to one's vocabulary...
I've done truss rod adjustments before, just not on this guitar. It's just self doubt. I panic that I'm going to fuck up just about everything I do. I learned to set up guitars back when I worked in a guitar shop 20 something years ago. You'd think I'd have acquired some confidence by now.
The trouble is that I sit here in the middle of the night, without access to parts or at a time when I can't do anything too noisy, and I start to doubt myself and end up on here asking stupid questions. Mind you, any excuse to talk about this stuff is always nice.
I've done it now, it went nice and smoothly with no problems, and, afterwards, I felt stupid for worrying about it, as usual. Not got springs yet. My wife was going to check the local music shop, but she's at work now and I don't know if she did or not.
What tunings do you use? I have this one tuned half a step down.
I've got a crappy Cort headless Flying V. That thing don't give a shit what you do to it, it just keeps working. I have a set of 9s on it and it will happily take tunings down to C standard. I've never had to adjust the truss rod on it.
