Truss Rod Question

Recommended Posts

Length depends on how long the neck is. The middle is routed deeper because on a truss rod of the one-way design, the truss rod mechanism works by adding backbow when it's tightened. It does this because when you tighten it, you're stretching it, and just like when you stretch a piece of string, it straightens. If its in a curved channel, straightening the truss rod means that the rod adds backbow to the neck due to the way it pushes against the inside of the channel.
