I've been lurking on these forums for a while (big fan of PS Fridays!) but this will be my first post.
I bought my first PRS SE (Custom 24) a couple months ago from a local PRS dealer and I absolutely love it. However, I've noticed that when I set the neck relief to 0.010" at the 8th fret (factory setup I believe), I get a really noticeable truss rod rattle. I can hear it very clearly when playing unplugged. I know it's the truss rod since I can rap on the back of the neck and hear it move around. If I give it more relief, the rattle decreases to almost nothing. Unfortunately, that is too much relief for me so I'm looking for another fix.
I've reads on frets.com (http://www.frets.com/FretsPages/Luth.../trussrod.html) that you can pour a mixture of naphtha and rubber cement into the truss rod cavity to dampen the rattle. Does anyone have any experience with this? My plan was to make a batch of the stuff and see how it behaves before I just dump it down there. I don't want to do something that will totally screw the guitar.
If someone can give me some advice/insight on how to fix this, that would be awesome.
Thanks in advance,
