Argh im so worried!

Recommended Posts

A Les Paul with a Tune-O-Matic bridge will have a neck angle like your pic shows. That is normal. If your neck has some back bow (I can't tell from the pic) that is normal with the strings off also. The string tension will pull the bow out of the neck and the truss rod will help fine tune the buzz out - if any. Raising/lowering the bridge will help get your string height (action) where you want it.

I'd recommend putting your bridge and strings back on and then if you have fret buzz issues ask again. I see no problem with your pics.

And, yes, you do adjust the truss rod on an LP with an allen key. I recommend you do not adjust your truss rod until you read the tutorial on the main site first. You can screw up a perfectly good guitar if you don't know what you are doing and you break the rod.
