Trussrod For 28"-30" Scale Neck?

Recommended Posts

Hey everybody.. I have a question for those who have made a baritone guitar:

I'm going to build a 8-string electric guitar with two trussrods. I'm going to use 28" or maybe even 30" scale with 24 frets.. It's going to be a long neck, so the question is.. How long trussrod should I use?

I have seen some 18 1/8" long rods and the longer are for bass guitars (24"), which I think are too long. I know there's no "absolute truth" for the trussrod lenghts, but I'd like to get some insight from people who have done this kind of guitar already..

Thanks in advance,
