    Hey guys! I'm getting plans together right now for my first bass, and I've got a question about the truss rod length. I'm planning on building a single cutaway bass with the body connecting to the neck all the way up to the 12th fret on the top half. Should my truss rod extend the whole length of the neck, or just from the 12th fret to the head? thanks a lot!
