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?
