    It makes some men crazy and they talk like fools.

    As a relative newcomer myself, welcome to the forum.
    Never heard of "MVF" but I'm sure you'll enlighten everyone.

    From TDPRI archive: "Back in the day (mid 60s) Fender produced a leaflet on adjusting the truss rod with a cartoon moustachioed character 'Maestro Von Fenderstrummer' who instructed you to lay the guitar on a flat padded surface, get a friend to hold the body firmly, then push down on the head a little so that the rod is not under tension, then adjust 1/4 turn clockwise to tighten (straighten) or anticlockwise to loosen to add some relief". This was before headstock end truss rod adjustments were possible apparently.

    I'm a riddle, wrapped in a mystery, inside an enigma.
