ShatnersBassoon Posted February 4 Report Share Posted February 4 I’ve recently come in to possession of a really old Hohner acoustic (I’m thinking 50s or 60s). Will be attempting to get this in to playable condition, cos why not? It was free and seems a shame for it to not be used. Importantly, it has no truss rod. At the moment the strings are sky high and the relief, well I would say it’s at least a millimetre, perhaps 2 Thing is I could straighten it, using a replacement fretboard clamped to it as a way of the neck conforming to the straightness (thanks Bizman). Or I could simply take the fretboard off, plane it flat and install a truss rod in there. Question is, with the warping/bending that has been happening over many many years, would that be an issue Decisions... Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
