Truss rods for bolt on basses
I know Mark doesn't recommend making a one piece maple neck too early in the game so I thought I'd start with a one piece maple bass neck - what can possibly go wrong eh?
As far as the truss rod goes.... can I make a longer version of the one we made in the acoustic course?
Does the slot have to be curved if a 2 way rod is used or is that just for a one way truss rod?
Can a 2 way rod be fitted from the back under a skunk stripe?
As there'll be a million miles between the neck and the pickups I could have the truss rod adjuster on the heel of the neck ... is that better / easier than a headstock adjuster?
Is 5mm bar still ok for a bass truss rod?
Any truss rod wisdom gratefully received
Confused from Truro
Of course I can wait mate. But I thought you had plans for the upcoming vids.
But if you can there's no rush as I'm working next Wednesday and Saturday- would rather watch that live if poss 😉
OK - Give me a weeks notice...I'll see what I can do!
Measure twice, cut once...
That would be awesome!
How does 19th, 22nd or 29th August sound?
