U-channel Truss Rod

Strong aluminum one-way truss rod, similar to the design used by Martin for many years.

The 3/8"-deep aluminum U-channel has an internal 3/16" steel rod, and a 5mm allen adjusting nut with washer.

Item  Width Length x Depth 
#1177 Acoustic  12mm  14-1/4" x 3/8"
(361.95 x 9.5mm)

Designed as a soundhole-accessible truss rod, and is
the same as installed in Martin guitars made after
2007.
#1177-E Electric  12mm  17-5/16" x 3/8"
(439.74 x 9.5mm)

For peghead or heel adjustment. This style of rod is
found in many production guitars, and is also preferred
by many custom builders because of its simple
design and strength.

(579.44 x 9.5mm)

For control of beefy bass necks. Can be installed for

HEY... hows come these changed?

These have always been great truss rods and I use them often... especially when speed is of the essence.
Unfortunately, the latest batch are slightly over sized (just a little wider aluminum channel material.
Now this isn't exactly a big deal but I already made the truss rod slots for three necks based on one of the older styles I had in the shop.
I'm going to run one through the thickness sander and see if I can slim it down a little. If it doesn't work I'm only out 12 bucks. Keep in mind if you bought a router bit for the old dimension rod it isn't going to work.
Of course, I should have known better than to route for the truss rod before I had the actual rod I was going to use. hahaha
