benglaus Posted July 23, 2004 Report Share Posted July 23, 2004 Hello, I'm wanting to rout the cavity for placing a truss rod and I was wondering about the positioning of the rod. How far into the body of the guitar can I go - all the way until I run out of room for the pickup? If I go way into the body, should I just make sure to adjust the truss rod length so that the middle of the bow is at the middle of the fret length scale? One last question, when you talk about the scale of a guitar - is it measured from nut to bridge or nut to tailpiece? Further, do you measure from the edge of the nut (I'm assuming) or the center of the nut. If anyone has answers, thank you! This website is great. Thanks again!
