Do Neck-through Guitars Need A Truss Rod?


Recommended Posts

From what I understand basicly all guitars need them, no matter how designed. Theres a debate here with this. I think that you need to put one in otherwise in X years the neck could bend out. He thinks that the reason for building a neckthrough would be to eliminate the need for the truss rod.

So whats the deal?

Exactly as Jester said, the trussrod only controls the neck outside the perimeter of the guitar body. It makes no difference if your neck is set, bolt on or thru, the trussrod perfoms the same task, and is just as essential to the performance of the guitar.

Your friend clearly has *no* idea what a trussrod does :D
