: Hi, I believe, by your description of the event, that you probably did'nt do any damage. The struss rod was obviously loose enough to allow that many turns, evidenced by the fact that the strings were so high and now seem to be of reasonable hieght. Had the struss rod been properly adjusted in the first place and you had gone willy-nilly merry cranking on the nut, you would most likely have heard something go "pop". When you get home you may find a slight backing off is in order, but not much else...then again, I may be totally wrong and guessing out my a**hole on this......peace....John.

I agree with Datsgor, you probably didn't do any damage. If you had turned it too much, you would likely have broken the truss rod, and you would hear a pop if you did. As he said, you may need to adjust it a little more today, but that isn't unusual with truss rod adjustments.
