Hey, I've just unearthed my neglected grande bouche after an extended stint in its case, and there's waay too much relief in the neck now.
I've slacked off all the strings, but I'll need to give the truss rod a good tweak before bringing 'er back up to pitch..
Can I assume that a standard clockwise twist's in order?
And can someone please tell me what size hex wrench (or Allen key, as they're referred to up here in Canada) I'll need.
Guess I'll need a pretty long one, too.. Any suggested suppliers?
While I'm asking, what about the petite bouche Gitanes? I've got two of 'em (maple 250 & the Jorgenson) and I'll need to adjust their necks sooner or later. How in the heck am I going to be able to get at the truss rod!?!
Josh, do you or Michael have something in the shop that I could order?
BTW, been up to my old tricks, playin the bars (electric blues w/a Flying V) for the long, hot summer..
Good to be back!!
