Because Photobucket has chosen to in effect "take down" everyone's photos (unless you pay them), we have extended post edit time in the Luthier's Corner to UNLIMITED.  If you used photobucket and happen to still have your images of builds, you can go back and fix as many of your posts as far back as you wish.

Truss rod sources?

Discussion in 'Luthier's Corner' started by count_funkula, Jan 5, 2005.


  1. I've been using Stewart MacDonald truss rods and, while I like them a lot, they require a pretty deep channel in the neck blank. This is preventing me from making my 5 string neck as asymetrical as I would like it. Where can I get a similiar truss rod that requires less depth?

    Any ideas?
