Misaligned Truss Rod Rout

Recommended Posts

If it is 1/16" off center from the neck blank, just change where you will cut so it becomes the centre. If it is off centre to the finished contour, it would work fine, but the adjuster will be off centre. If the adjuster is at the heel end, it doesn't matter as it wouldn't really be in view, but at the nut end, it would be noticeable. Then you would have to fit a truss rod cover to disguise it. Other than that, I don't see any problems.

How far along are you? If you're in the early stages, there are a couple of things you could do. If you have the tools for it, you could rip the board in a few spots and turn it into a laminate neck. You could also do an asymmetrical neck carve, sort of like this one that Warmoth does:


Or you could just go with it as is. What kind of wood are you using anyway? Pics would help.
