    Good afternoon everyone!!!.

    well as most of you are aware I build electric basses but build the odd electric guitar...Im curious about your truss rod you go with the dual action or single?.

    I primarily have always used the dual action...but the electric guitar i have been commissioned to build has a very thin neck! it ideal to move to a single action truss rod? ...too allow for a very thin neck profile>?

    options and opinions?


    Best regards

    On a thin neck a double acting is probably not going to be necessary. String tension should always pull it forward so a single acting should be fine to allow the thin profile.
