Please. I have a semi-severe backbow. I know I have to loosen the truss, but I'm scared I'll hurt my baby.

Just loosen the truss and 1/8th of a turn until it's better. And do it quick before your neck is completely warped.

Should I turn it quickly or slowly?

The lefty-loosey thing still applies, I'm guessing?

And if I need to loosen it more than 1/8 of a turn, how long should I wait to let the neck settle between turns? About 30 minutes?
