  1. I dont know much about the topic, but Modulus used to make thier necks with out truss rods and the ones I played seemed stable.

  8. Does anyone have any tips for making pickup templates? I need to mkae a template for Stringray style humbuckers. Also, any tips on tranferring paper drawing onto plywood for accurate body templates? Thanks guys
