I need to know how to alter my trush rod.
When I bought some new strings I made a huge mistake. I took my old strings off and went and did some other stuff before I returned to my bass and put the new strings on. I must have left my bass for about four hours with no strings on it. Now my strings sound really tinny and i'm sure it has nothing to do with the fact they are new. Leaving my bass with no strings on has definatly done something to the neck, I think that the trush rod needs adjusting.

The problem is that I have always gotten a friend of mine to alter the trush rod for me, and he is on holiday right now. To add to the problem, I am practicing with my band tomorrow evening and I need this bass desperatly. I'm going to have to alter he trush rod my self, but how do I do it? My bass is an Aria Pro 2 IGB-68 if thats any help.

Also, my bass has humbucker pickups (I don't know their proper name), the kind that are used on a music man stingray bass. The exposed metal parts on the pickup have turned a murky brown colour. How do I clean them and get them clean and shiny?

Any help would really be appreciated
