Sounds like my old Teisco Del Ray from the mid 60's .........

I've done that plenty of times as well. It works. I've had a couple disturbing crack type sounds but I could feel it was probably just a tiny bind of the TR in the channel. I basically don't adjust TR's anymore after the initial time. If the winter/summer transition is sudden and it effects the neck I usually will just give it a gentle bend. IMO people monkey with their TR's way too much. Once you have the proper relief it really won't change much. A one piece neck is way more likely to warp or bow than a laminated neck and cranking a TR in those cases can do more harm than good. I've busted a couple in my dumber days and have no desire to do that again.


My first choice is to not touch the truss rod as well. But when I get a boogered guitar or one that's been played with a different gauge of strings than I use (10's on acoustic and electric) I have no choice. Most acoustics will have 12's on them, when I drop down to 10's the guitar usually need 1/4 truss rod turn. But you're bracer than me, I've never reefed hard enough to hear cracking...LOL
