TRET

Truss rod single action, 17" x 3/8" (overall length 17 3/4")

$19.54

This rod only needs a 3/16" x 3/8" deep slot. The top rod is square, welded to round stock. Square stock means more surface area bears against the fingerboard, making fingerboard cracking improbable, and the use of a spline unnecessary. Put a piece of scotch tape over the rod when spreading glue, then remove it right before clamping the fingerboard. It's a good idea to cushion this rod with a little silicone, especially near the nut and a few other points. This prevents the rod's resonant frequency from making unnerving buzzing sounds. You will have to excavate the channel a little more, about 1/2", to accommodate the key stock against which the nut bears.

Product Description

 

Please Note: With the exception of the TRUC made in Japan, all of the truss rods we carry are made, inspected and tested in the USA. Still, we urge you to carefully inspect each rod you receive to make sure it meets your specifications. Once installed, a truss rod can be extremely difficult to replace or repair. Put each rod in a vise and turn the nut beyond its normal range of adjustment (turn it both ways if it is a two-way rod). As with all of our products, LMI is not responsible for any effect of a defective truss rod, or any related costs, beyond the price of the truss rod itself. In keeping with our return policy, we are happy to replace or refund the cost of any rod that you are not happy with. Please call for a return authorization number within 2 weeks of receiving your order. Modification of the rod in any way voids your warranty.

NOTE: Hex wrenches are not included with truss rod
