About This Item

One of the most common and traditional truss rod designs used in stringed instruments. This adjustable truss rod can be cut to fit a variety of instrument types and sizes.

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 

(Customer's Reviews)

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


Truss Rod - Traditional

(Customer's Reviews)

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).

(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.
