Hey Posted April 22, 2008 Report Share Posted April 22, 2008 I got this truss rod on advice from this thread but I haven't seen a lot of information on it. Of the three books I've read, the only one that mentions rods that like was Martin Koch's, where he says that the opening of the u-channel should face the bottom of the neck. However, that's in a description of a one-way truss rod with a u-channel, so I wasn't sure if the same applied. So, how do you mount it? Do you directly epoxy the channel to the slot in the wood? Do you epoxy all sides of it (bottom and sides, and top when you put on the fretboard)? You don't need to put it in a tube like some truss rods, right? The bottom of mine has some sort of tape covering the inner workings. A corner has come off. Can I just put normal tape over that? Nothing in the wood needs to hold it in place, right (eg., how a normal truss rod has a slot for the nut and a hole for an anchor in the heal)? You just make a slot and press it in. Anything else? Thanks. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
