Testimonials

I've been buying products from LMI since the 70's, long before the web was around. 
The selection and quality has always been superior, and the pricing reasonable! There are other places I can go to buy materials, but none that I trust as much...

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.

  • Overall length: 411mm/16.2"
  • Rod length not including the nut: 381mm/15"
  • Nut thread: 5mm x .8
