Selmer Copy Truss Rod

Recommended Posts

I am currently building my first acoustic, a Selmer Django Reinhardt copy (the one with the small oval soundhole). I am not looking for full authenticity here, and I wish to fit an adjustable truss rod, one of those threaded rod in an aluminium channel things.

How do I do this? If I fit the rod to the length of the neck, it will be nearly impossible to adjust (small soundhole, long way from neck)

Should I make a longer neck that reaches inside the body nearer to the soundhole or what? Or should I look round for a long allen key?

Anybody done this?
