L3 Setup Help After Change Of String Gauge And Adding Trem Spring
I picked up a 2nd L3 a while back – the Tumescent one, love it.
Anyway, a couple of weeks back I had my first gig with it so swapped out the 9s for 10s, added a spring to keep the trem decked on the body (my preference) tweaked the action sightly, went and played the gig…superb – although it didn’t feel as resonant as my standard L3 on the night
Went to pick it up this morning having not touched it since and the action’s dropped on every string to the point they all buzz and choke. There’s as the strings are virtually on the frets there’s no relief. It’s been on a stand in the room and we’ve had a mixture of hot and humid days and a few breezy nights. The window is open most of the time.
My guess is that this is the result of the string gauge change, adding a spring and not adjusting the truss rod?
My question is what order should I set it up in?
Raise the action to my preferred height and then adjust the relief?
Or should I be adjusting the truss rod first?
Also which way should I be adjusting? Adding or removing relief?
Any help greatly appreciated
