LOL! Hi Spudmunkey,
Good to hear from you buddy! Well I knew it was available on the website somewhere but could not find it. Then I looked under guitar manual and what do you know..? It says
"To make adjustments use the 4mm hex wrench provided
with your guitar. A 5/32” hex wrench will also
work. Turn the nut 1/10 of a turn and recheck. Do
Not force or over tighten the truss rod!"

With the air getting less humid as winter rolls into season the action in my CT624 was just a little too proud. SO I made an adjustment to the trust rod and know I have the lowest action on this guitar I have ever had. I will check again later today for buzzing and back it off if there is any string buzz.
That my friends is your 2a.m. report.
FYI in 5 weeks I will be working a day shift which means I can start playing guitar out at night again after 10 years of working nights... Yes!
