    very weird, backwards place
    I have a Fender AVRI 62 custom tele and the neck keeps bowing backwards. I've adjusted the thruss rod 3 times. Does anybody know why it keeps doing this?

    If the guitar is put in a warmer place the effect is the same as tightening the truss rod slightly on a single vintage style rod.could this be your problem?
    Seasonal temperature and humidity changes can require compensating for with this style of rod.

    It seems like the truss rod keeps loosening. Maybe it's the weather. We've had a lot of snow this winter.

    Try to keep the guitar at a relatively constant temperature and humidity,or at least no extremes.

    If its back-bowing, wouldn't you want to loosen the truss rod?

    Does this tele have the bi-flex truss rod?

    I'm not sure, but the bow is going away from the strings. The truss rod is at the end of the neck by the body. I have to turn it clockwise when I staighten the neck.

    Bowing away is the opposite of back bowing.
