Just got hold of a second hand Fender Classic Series '69 Telecaster Thinline, and I'm having a few issues with the setup.
Firstly the action was way too high, probably 7/64" or about 3mm, and the neck relief was also too much (0.021").
The truss rod adjustment is at the heel of the neck which is a bit of a pain. Anyway I took the neck off and when I went to tighten the screw it was completely loose. I've never experienced this before, so I was a bit concerned. I tried to tighten it some more and it did start to take, although it felt quite tight.
This seems to have worked, although I might need to back it off a little bit. Should I be concerned about the initial looseness? Or should it be okay now that it seems to be tightening up.
