Perfect for the job

Cuts a clean slot. Cutting a truss rod slot is not "rocket science", but with this bit there are no worries about fit with the Hot Rod Truss Rods.

I use this for routing the truss rod slot and for cutting the edges of my bridge to the correct thickness.

I bought this bit to help ensure a good install in my first guitar build. I was terrified of something going wrong, however this bit made it a flawless install. Thank you stewmac!

The right tool for stewMac's T rods. I wouldn't want to use anything else. A perfect fit every time!

Made a Clean Slot

I purchased this for my first guitar build (still in progress). I originally contemplated just using a basic 1/4" bit or using two passes of a smaller bit. Then I thought I might as well do it the proper way to reduce risk for error. This bit made an extremely clean slot in my maple neck blank and it fits my Hot Rod perfectly, no rattle. The gap between the cutter blades also helped me line it up along the center line. I'm hoping I get to use this on many more guitar necks, and maybe some other projects as well.

Bit was just the thing for the hot rod. Made a good groove that the truss rod fit well into.

Glad I read the reviews on this one.... So many stories of cut fingers. When mine arrived I took care when taking the protective coat off. Glad I did, 'cause man, this puppy is razor sharp! Made the most beautiful rout out I have ever seen and the Hot Rod sits in so snug! Don't muck about with saws just buy this and save your self a lot of work.
