This kit includes a 24" x 3/16" stainless steel truss rod, threaded on one end for the adjusting nut (5/16" hex, supplied with washer). Simply saw the rod to length, cut 10-32 threads on the blank end, then attach and peen the anchor nut securely. The Thread Cutting Die for cutting the 10-32 threads is sold separately.

old-school cool

Works for the price. Best for small OM-000 sized guitars/necks. In my opinion. The double adjustable "hot rod" style for a few bucks more are a better deal for one at a time builds or for longer/electric necks

Used five of these so far for Les Paul builds. Perfect for the job although it should come with the half moon washer as standard. All good though.

Trussrod (Not metric).

By
(Customer's Reviews)


I am building a 59 Burst replica and this product is as close as I can find to vintage specs. It has the 10/32 thread (not metric)that I am after and the round stop pin rather than the strip of metal. It is also 3/16" diameter. All this and a fair price. All too often, anything with a vintage spec is silly money.

Good Value

I used the Traditional Truss Rod Kit as a replacement in a 1977 Yamaha FG345. The kit is good except for the Gibson style adjusting nut which I guess is personal preference. I purchased a Fender style slotted adjusting nut separately. An option to buy the kit with a choice of adjusting nut style would be nice.

Stainless Steel??

This rod is listed as stainless steel. That would mean it would be non magnetic, but a magnet will clamp right on to it. I think this is carbon steel..

Good replacement

Had to replace the truss rod in a Gibson LG0. Short non standard size. Had to cut and re-thread but all worked fine. Seems like it may age better than the original.

I use the t.t.r.kit in several repairs in my lab and I must say that the quality is excellent, both of materials and the workmanship.

I'm not giving 5 stars because one time I got the anchor with a lot of rust!
