Well, shoot; I tried to adjust the truss rod to give the strings a tad more clearance, but the nut ran out of pressure after 2 turns. In other words, after two small turns of the wrench, I was able to spin the nut with my fingers. The neck is still flat, so I guess that's good news. Plan, B, anyone?...

You know, I was wondering if I should be tuning the melody strings around fret 12, because of the reason you mention: my right hand will be spending a lot of time there. I'll definitely take your suggestion about tuning around fret 4 & 5 for the bass side, too. When I tune, I have the instrument...

Whatever you do, do SOMETHING to protect your ears. When I was in my late teens/early twenties, this sort of thing really wasn't on anyone's radar (except maybe for Pete Townshend's), and I was playing drums in a rock band while working in construction and metal fabrication jobs, so my ears got beat...
