I did my first ever truss rod adjustment and mod at the same time.
The neck on my Kramer Forum 1 had too much relief and the truss rod was already as tight as it could get.
So, after talking to boots and some dudes on basstalk they recommended that I add a washer to the truss rod nut. So I did. And now I have the perfect amount of neck relief!
Here are the before, during, and after pictures of the truss rod pocket.
Before, here it is as tight as it would get with a reasonable amount of force
as you can see, the washer the nut pushes against looks like i has just sunk into the wood over the years
After, a free washer from the auto parts store
Thanks for the recommendation boots-paul
