Because Photobucket has chosen to in effect "take down" everyone's photos (unless you pay them), we have extended post edit time in the Luthier's Corner to UNLIMITED.  If you used photobucket and happen to still have your images of builds, you can go back and fix as many of your posts as far back as you wish.

Different truss rod question

Discussion in 'Luthier's Corner' started by needmoney, Jan 25, 2006.

  1. I just bought an el' cheapo neck from my local guitar store and I'm wondering how I go about adjusting the truss rod?! It's at the headstock end, but it's not shaped for an allen key, just circular. I've never seen one like this before.


    Any ideas?????
  2. Never mind turns out sawdust was built up on the nut. I'm an idiot!

    I was going to say that, or that the allen-key hole had been stripped.
