Hello all. Just got my first American Telecaster, a 52 reissue apparently from the mid to late nineties, but I’d like to zero in on the year as much as possible. Pictires attached. Regarding the truss rod, the relief in the neck is bordering on the severe. It’s not warped, just lots of relief. Removing the neck to adjust the truss rod, it’s extremely difficult to tighten. I used a good sized Phillips head screwdriver, substantial, but still extremely difficult to tighten though I did get about 3/16 of a turn. Loosening happened more easily so the rod is not completely frozen. Tricks appreciated.
