Somebody tell me, is this thing fucked? If the image doesn't make it clear, the truss rod is in contact with the left and bottom walls as seen looking head-on, so it seems to me the neck or rod is twisted somehow? I would really like to throw some relief into my friend's neck here, but I don't see how it's possible.
What's even more confusing is that's a round collar with a round interior and I'm not sure, but maybe it's a Phillips or flathead inside that I'm supposed to tweak on? I'm double confused by that. I thought I could grab it with a set of needlenose pliers and twist sideways but I'm just going to tear the nut off.
This is some Dean Vendetta XM or something.
Position is par for the cheaply-made-cnc'd-course.
Round interior looks more a product of some idiot "having a go" - does it look like it's been sheared?
So, it will turn...if you can turn it
