Truss rod one way wrapped, 22 3/4" x 15/32" (overall length 23 1/2")
The one-way wrapped rod was developed over twenty years ago by Bill Lewis in collaboration with Michael Gurian, of Gurian Instruments. It's based on the truss rod of the old Vega Banjos. Rickenbacker Guitar has also employed a similar rod for many years. Thousands of these truss rods have been in use, and are still in use.
LMI has made a few refinements. We now use a brass stop block and have made the broach of the nut a little smaller so that the walls of the keyway are thicker. This rod is wrapped with non-deteriorating shrink tubing which protects against "rod buzz" and makes it unnecessary to use silicone. The guitar head is not weakened by excessive cutting away where the head meets the neck, and in turn, a narrow 3/8" cover plate is adequate.
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
