  1. Guitar: Tech, Electronics and DIY
    As you can see from the pictures, the truss rod has been moved down (or backwards, depending on your orientation), and is pressed hard into the bottom of the route. As such, I cannot get the truss rod wrench over the nut on the end. Stringing the guitar up increases the bow slightly, as well...

    So, will this be the next thing guitarists will obsess about? Personally I think it's a non-issue. There's sliiiight differences in the clips, anybody with decent ears can hear that. But nothing I would care about when choosing specs for a neck or something. I go for functionality. Side...

    This is where I've been getting my customized truss rod covers and poker chips... Truss Rod Covers - Custom Engraved - Page 1 - Philadelphia Luthier Tools & Supplies, LLC It looks like they offer parts that fit Ibanez, Schecter, etc. And yes, it's totally worth the $12 a piece having two...

    I did my first ever truss rod adjustment and mod at the same time. The neck on my Kramer Forum 1 had too much relief and the truss rod was already as tight as it could get. So, after talking to boots and some dudes on basstalk they recommended that I add a washer to the truss rod nut. So I...

    You guys may remember this guitar from this thread. It plays great, sounds awesome, and looks fantastic. I kept good care of it, and added some pretty cool features: '61 pickguard, raw nickel pickup covers, Gibson OEM Silvertop knobs, and a Gibson plain truss cover. I'd like to get $475...

    I've had a Strat for many years which I've always played in standard tuning. Recently I've had to tune it to drop C for something I'm doing. I've obviously gone for a heavier gauge and have adjusted the saddles for the intonation. The problem is that while the intonation is fine at the 12th...

    I was looking to brass saddles, tone block, and/or nut, what difference will they make, and which one will make the 'best' difference? I'm looking to get a little more chime. I was also curious how I could do a JP style truss rod adjustment, as removing the pickguard/neck to do action is...

    How to adjust the average locking trem: - Take off lock nuts - Take off pads - Slack strings - Locate small screwdriver - Remove truss rod cover - Figure out which pipe wrench I need - Choose the wrong one - Try another one - Sweet, that's it! - Realize that I didn't slack the strings enough...

    I'm having some trouble with a bass a got new back in April. The neck has too much relief but the truss rod appears to be as tight as it will get. If I loosen the truss rod it does what it should and adds more relief. Fender specs say .012" / 0.3mm and I can only get it to about twice that...

    Hi, I have a JP7 with a roasted maple neck (Pao Ferro fretboard). I got the guitar about 8 months ago, and to my liking the action was a bit too low, and the neck was too straight, so I adjusted the truss rod a bit to get a little more bow in it and that also resulted in a higher action which I...

    Hi, I just got a new Mh-350 nt LTD guitar through amazon. overall a decent guitar for the money. 2 problems - How do i eliminate the sound of the string vibrating from playing fretted notes? (do i make a truss bar adjustment? and how tight should it be?) - Do i need to adjust the truss rod if...

    My tech finished up working on spoke wheels truss rod mods on my Charvels. He has them worked out for each of the styles and if anyone is looking to do this mod to their Charvel he has pics and instructions along with the spoke wheel for a specific model. Each model was a little different in...

    What the fucking fuck, Fender. The hole where a normal Fender/Tele style bullet truss rod would be is filled in, no side truss adjustment, and there's just what's pictured where you seemingly need to remove the neck. :pissed: Help pl0x

    Ok, I've been playing a long time now but I still blow at setups :D My guitar had a very straight neck and it started back bowing a little bit so I loosened the truss rod maybe a little too much and now the whole guitar feels a lot stiffer to play and I hate it. There isn't THAT much relief now...

    I was looking at a friend's acoustic and the action at the 12th fret was like, I dunno, 6 or 7mm. But I didn't see a way to adjust it. No truss rod, no adjustable saddles. I don't remember what kind of guitar it was.

    Looking to buy a set of Ibanez cavity covers - output jack, electronics cavity and trem cavity. I also need a 7 String truss rod cover - anyone able to help me out? Condition is not important at all as long as all the corners are still there! Scuffs etc are okay.

    My Suhr 6 came with an allen wrench for the truss rod adjustment (between the bottom of the neck and the bridge pickup). Like a jackass, I managed to put somewhere that "I wouldn't lose it" and naturally... I can't remember where that is. :lol: It was like a normal allen wrench, but the short...

    I'm spending some quality time with my new ESP, trying to dial out the buzz from it sitting untouched (and uncared for :mad:) on the Guitar Center wall for all that time. Originally, it was a mountain of fret buzz below the 12th fret, worst at the bottom, but good to go past the 12th. I backed...
