Hello there,

Don't want to damage the guitar? Tinkering with the truss rod when you don't know what you are doing is a good way to trash the neck. You did not say why you think you need to adjust the truss rod. The truss rod has a very limited function. It adjusts the neck relief for about the first 12 frets. Relief is the curvature of tne neck. You check the relief by placing a capo on the first fret. Then depress the low E string at the 12th fret. Measure the distance between the bottom of the string and the top of the 6th fret. It should be 0.010 inches. A feeler gauge (like used in auto repairs) works well for this. If the distance is greater, you turn the truss rod clockwise (as you look down from the top of the neck). Takes an allen wrench to turn it. Turm in 1/4 rotation increments. Turn 1/4 turn and recheck.

If you are tinkering with the truss rod for any purpose other than adjusting the relief, you are making a big mistake. That is how necks get trashed.
