    Which end do you recommend placing the truss rod adjustment on a neck thru bass? I'm planning a 5 piece maple and padauk neck with glued on cocobolo maple sandwich wings. I'm up in the air between traditional headstock access vs a spoke nut in the heel end. I appreciate any advice. Thanks

    With a neck through it's for sure easier to have it at the headstock end. If you want it at the heel, you'll have to dig holes for clearance.
