    Hi I have recently embarked on a new bass project and just have a question about the neck i'm trying to build
    i am trying to figure out the best way to route the truss rod channel for a headless neck i'm trying to build.

    if i want to route the truss rod channel so the adjustment nut can be adjusted from the heel of the neck should it have a curve? and if so which way should the route bow/curve? up or down ? how do i go about the depth of the cut?:confused: if anyone of you talented experienced luthiers out there can give me any guidance on this it will be greatly appreciated.. thanks

    Yes. The double-action rods just need a straight channel, and provide more adjustability too! IMHO, the only reason not to use one is if you're doing restorations for the Smithsonian.
