Truss Rod Choices

Discussion in 'Luthier's Corner' started by Stringwalker, Jan 7, 2012.

  1. I'm getting to the point of need ing to choose a truss rod for my neck and looking at the StewMac Hot Rods as a possible choice.

    I'm thinking to just keep it easy and use the 4mm hex nut version but I really like the spoke wheel like on my Stingray. I've never built a neck before so I'm a little intimidated by the doing the spoke version. I figured I'd ask for opinions and advice before I jump. What are the opinions of you seasoned and experienced builders? Preferences of one over the other?

    I'm not seasoned, but I've been researching them as well and ended up going with rods sold by Martin Keith guitars.

    He's a TBer. You can contact him through a PM and purchase one or more.

    I picked his based on good things I had heard, and they are some of the smaller overall profiles (width and depth) and use a 4mm allen wrench.
