Apologies in advance if this isn’t the place for this type of post, but I did something correctly on the Sterling SUB (the single pickup model) this afternoon and I’m pretty stoked.
When I brought the Squier back last week, I went with the Sterling SUB like I initially had only in a mint green color. It was in good shape, not really abused and played well enough. I was nervous about getting one off the wall, but just went for it.
I brought it home and used it for roughly a week before noticing there was a lot of string rattle toward the base of the neck on fretted and open E.
Checked the neck - straight so far as I can tell with no visible twisting.
Checked to make sure we were in tune - all in tune.
Looked up how to properly diagnose an issue with the Truss and based on where the rattling was, I think I may have gotten it sorted. About a quarter turn counter clockwise seems to have made the noise go away and while I haven’t attempted to tune the strings again, I think I may have gotten it right!
If I did it wrong, it’s ok. I still did something on my own.
