Just make sure you’ve adjusted the tension of the springs in the back and the height of the bridge. Also, if you messed around with your guitar’s neck, don’t mess with anything else and leave your guitar in place for a few hours at least, because it takes some time for the wood to “adjust”. 0 likes January 11, 2018 at 6:07 am #3307 Tristan MartinekParticipant Okay, 3 days after set my 9-46 in Drop D, the neck is straight. Not even needed to touche the truss rod. So in my opinion use hybrid gauges if you use drop tunings kid ! 🙂 0 likes Author Posts Viewing 4 posts - 16 through 19 (of 19 total) ← 1 2 You must be logged in to reply to this topic.
