Hi, all. There is a lot of debate on the proper way to store a guitar, specifically regarding the tension on the neck. I would like to get your thoughts on the matter. One question that comes to mind; is the truss rod of the Spirits single-action? Because if it is, then I will simply loosen the truss rod all the way and take off the strings, so that there will be no tension on the neck at all. But, if it is a dual-action rod, loosening it all the way would be a very bad idea. Supposing it is dual-action, what then?
Hey folks, So I got a new Epiphone (Sheraton ii Pro) and the action was really low out of the box, so much so that there's a bit of buzzing going on. I took it to the man who sets up my guitars and we found that the truss rod wasn't tightened at all. This obviously creates a problem because if we tighten it anymore, the neck will become even more convex and the buzzing will get worse. His idea was to put 11s on the guitar instead of 10s to increase tension in the opposite direction, and rase the bridge a bit to see where we're at after that. I do trust his expertise, but I wanted to know if anyone has had a similar experience here. Have you ever gotten a guitar with a truss rod like that, and how has it affected the life of the guitar? Thank you
