matttheguy Posted July 18, 2006 Report Share Posted July 18, 2006 Alright, so, I'm installing the truss rod in my neck right now, Les Paul style. I've already cut a channel into my neck: 3/16" wide, 1/2" deep at each end, curved to accomodate a 1/8" (5/8" deep) drop in the center and a 3/8" hole drilled at one end for the anchor. Alright, not a big problem. It was actually quite fun routing that channel. Now, I'm going to but the rod in and I have a few questions. Should I bend the rod before I put it in the channel, or will the fillet be sufficient to keep it curved? When I put the fillet on top of the rod itself, how do I know if it's too tight, or can you not be too tight? Also when installing the fillet, how do I keep the glue (epoxy??) from getting onto the rod itself. Just for clarification, this is a Les Paul neck with a simple 3/16" truss rod. Thank you very much!
