    Hey,

    Anyone do a fret levelling job on a Squier mini strat? The trust rode honestly doesn't seem to work. The nut seems very loose and regardless of turns, nothing much seems to happen. Thoughts and advice please?

    Well, in the end I got it as flat as I could but I think something is wrong with either the trust rode or the neck(natural back bow?). I'll string it up later and hopefully it will work.

    'truss rod'

    If it's not tightening, either the truss rod's broken in two or the thread is stripped

    I'm thinking that it may only work in one direction. I read somewhere that it's possible.
