your guitar is likely EX1

before adjusting the truss rod, loosen the strings. then adjust the rod, small amount each time. after small adjustments, tighten and re-tune strings and check their height. Distance from strings to fret is called 'Action' in english.

Suggest you search in Russian for "Truss Rod Adjustment" for better help.

Hi

Please can you describe the problem for frets 14-20. Are the strings too high? Are the strings too low?

Hoping we can help you :)

Cheers
J.

Are the strings too low for 17 frets,
the string almost lies on it
