Hello! My first-ever order arrived today. I had ordered some wood items and they are GORGEOUS! Smooth, perfectly flat!, and the woods themselves - with each one I pulled out, I just kept saying, WOW!, *WOW*!!!, over and over.  And thank you so much for the beautiful piece of East Indian Rosewood - it was described as "2nd grade" I believe, and I asked for a reddish color if possible, and I think this piece is absolutely stunning! These really exceeded my expectations! 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.

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