    Second this.
    And don't touch the trusses until you do.
    The cracks are caused by extreme unequal tension between 'em or and/or over-torqueing.
    If you are attempting to reduce relief that means you're attempting to tighten 'em yet further. (Iintroduce back-bow)
    The reason for the 2 rods was to compensate for the extreme difference in tension between the treble and bass sides of the neck.
    Ideally the bass side would have had a little more torque (backbow).
    Like Wiley, I've never heard of a viable fix for it.
    Maybe PM Mavuser who has 2 F112's and GUILDFS4612ce (Jane) who was the first person I ever saw point out that problem many years ago, to see if they know of anything.
    Back then Jane indicated it was a fatal problem, "IIRC".
    Sorry to be a downer but if there's any hope I'd get the patient to a doctor first.

    Good input. I may go tomorrow. But probably going to just drop it back off. Pity, pretty otherwise and sure sounds nice.

    HOLD THE PRESSES:

    Check this out. I merely tapped the crack a few times with my index finger...like you would to listen to a crack on the sound board, a ripe coconut (or AL's head)...and 3-4 pieces of lacquer popped off and the crack is much more noticeable.

    Hmmm, probably should detune

    Looks like wileypicket nailed it!!!

    And for future reference, when facing the rods from the headstock end, it's the traditional "Righty (clockwise) tighty, lefty loose-y"
    The trick with 12-ers is getting the balance right between 'em.


    PS: Just tapped my head a couple of times.
    It does sound like a coconut!

    or bass-side tighty treble loosey.

    Don't ask why that is easier for me to remember

    I would like to thank Gilded and Wiley for taking their time to look and their honest observations on this guitar.

    And of course Al for his wealth of info.

    I apologize if I ask basic questions but the knowledge base here is just incredible....only matched by the willingness of the members to share.

    Thanks!
