Building a 6 string to replace my 6 string. Truss rod is 24 inch. Neck will be 35 scale 24 fret which leaves a little over 2.5 inches from end of truss rod to end of neck. I can't find any 25 inch truss rods that are not custom (if you do, let me know) Question is: is this too much dead space with this layup or will it be strong enough? Do I put carbon fiber in the heel as well? Discuss away. Edit: maple, bloodwood, wenge. Thanks all.
