    Get yourself a 2' piece of .187" steel rod. Thread both ends with a 10-32 die, fit an anchor to one end and an adjustment nut on the other...Presto!!! Or...

    Get yourself down to the hardware store and purchase 2' of 10-32 'All Thread' threaded rod and do the same thing. Instant truss rod for cheap. Has worked for me numerous times...

    Good luck,
