I know this subject has become somewhat of a dead horse, but here goes... When I had Bill at oldvetparts make this neck, I wanted everything as traditional as possible with exception of the radius. That meant the truss rod adjustment at the heel. Well now, due to the change of seasons, I need just a touch more relief in the neck. loosening strings, loosening the neck so it can be tilted up, adjusting, bringing back up to pitch, checking relief again, etc. is somewhat of a hassle. Anyway, rant over, screwdriver in hand, carry on.
