  1. The single-acting compression style truss rod is simple and easy to fabricate. They are not without their disadvantages however. Fundamentally, a compression rod relies on the wood it is mounted in to remain stable. Wood fibres respond to shifts in relative atmospheric humidity by absorbing or losing water; metal does not. Changes in the moisture content of wood subtly alter its dimensions, and consequently the truss rod will react with these dimensional changes. As neck wood gains moisture it expands, increasing compression of the wood between the truss rod anchor points as it pushes out
