Truss rod placement 22 or 24 fret bass. 34 inch scale length
Hi and Help, I am stumped
Building a neck through bass. I have a 24 inch stew mac truss rod for basses. Does truss rod placement have to reach all the way through the heel mass of the neck? Does it matter? Will it affect functionality? Always wondered that. At 34 inch scale lenght for 24 frets, seems like my truss rod is too short but at 22 it will reach a good portion of the heel. Would like to utilize as much fretboard area with only the last two frets on the body. Since it is a neck through, the neck heel will also be carved down towards the body for more fingerboard playability access apparent with such custom bass designs. Is it best to try looking for a longer truss rod? Dunno. Also where exactly is good placement for carbon fiber rods on the neck? Towards the body more or the nut? How do you bass builders approach this?
