Testimonials

“I recently purchased a beautiful fingerboard from you and now I am thinking of grabbing fretwire from you as well. Unfortunately I'm cheap and lazy and find myself here asking if it is possible to pay more to have your fretwire radiused before it is sent? You guys would be the coolest ever. No matter what the outcome, I will be sending more business your way from here in Maine. Hoping for good news! Thank you!"

Truss Rod, U-channel

TRUC001.jpgUnlike other u-channel truss rods on the market, our one-way aluminum channel rod is a drop-in replacement for vintage Martin guitars. Of course, it is also great for new instruments. This truss rod is meant for soundhole (vs. peghead) adjustment. The rod is installed with the tape side down and the flat surface of the rod almost kissing the fingerboard. The tape should not be removed as it acts as a glue barrier. 

The hex wrench (TRMRW) is sold separately.
