    What about using only carbon rods in the neck and omiting the adjustable trust rod? It's just a thought I had sinse the basses that I've seen with carbon reinforced necks don't seem to hardly ever need trustrod adjustments. Any ideas? Thanks
     
  2. Reinforcing rods assist the trussrod in providing counter tension to the strings. They aren't the sole source of resistance. And there will nearly always be a need sometime, in the course of an instruments playing life, that the neck will need adjustment. Even my own! :p
