In true personal fashion, I've reinvented the wheel again and come up with my own trussrod system. I'm to the point of installing an aluminum channel over my trussrod for the full length of the neck. The aluminum channel is flanged at each end to catch in slots on the sides of the trussrod channel. This makes it stay put and isolates it from the trussrod itself. Now I'm stumped on whether I should also glue in the channel with epoxy or put a fingerprint full of silicone along the sides or just leave it and glue the fretboard on. To those neckbuilders out there, what would you do?
