steel8909 Posted March 25, 2008 Report Share Posted March 25, 2008 (edited) Hey there I'm new here, cool place. Ok so I recently upgraded my unknown strat copy (I bought it used, all it says is RedFox on the head) I put in some brand new humbuckers, new pearl pickguard and new cool looking knobs and I love it. Since now I have a wired strat pcikguard I'm thinking of building a whole new guitar for it. I have access to pretty much all the tools I will need except the ones for fretting but I'll think of that later. Heres the point of the thread. When I was in highschool I remember this guy was builing a guitar in our shop class. For the truss rod he cut an ordinary peice of metal and used that. Besides not being able to adjust it, is there anything wrong with it? Maybe sound wise? I wasn't playing guitar back then so I didn't ask any questions. I have a long peice of metal which I can cut and use, good idea or should I just buy a trust rod? I'm trying to keep this project as low cost as possible Thanks!
