question with trust rod


Recommended Posts

You can do that when using LED's but you're not going to gain much in terms of saving work. You would still need to attach the wires to the rod in some way such that the wires wouldn't break when adjusting the rod. You would still need to run another wire through the neck for the common (or positive depending on which way you wire it). My opinion is that it would not be nearly as reliable of a conneciton as using a dedicated wire and it does not save any time or work (I think it adds time/work actually).

Before you decide anything about how you're going to run the wires, you'll need to decide on a circuit design. You'll need to decide whether or not to use series / parallel or a combination of both. Once you have the circuit designed, then you can get into the physical routing and placement of wires and components.

You could solder an input wire to one end and then solder an output wire to the other end that will split out to all your lights. But as mentioned, why bother? Your truss rod will provide so much resistance that the final signal will be too weak to activate your lights anyway. When it comes to wiring, the straightest route is the best route.
