You know, I posted about this a few weeks ago, and the response was basically "try messing with the truss rod. You cant really mess it up if you just turn it a little. Dont be afraid to adjust your instrument" and now from you Im hearing "never touch the truss rod. You can really mess up your instrument."

Whats the deal? Yes or no?

And as far as buzzing goes -- I like a degree of buzzing. It gives you that percussive bite that makes playing with roundwound stings worthwhile. Does your friend whose bass you are borrowing like the sound as well? Does he approve of your adjusting it?
