Carbon Fiber Neck Rods

About This Item

Stronger than an equivalent volume of steel, carbon fiber rods can supplement an adjustable truss rod to help prevent neck twisting.

Short sections can be installed to reinforce the base of a peghead. Formed with heat and pressure in an epoxy base, carbon fiber adds little weight, but adds significant stiffness.

So Easy to Use!!!!

I love them for my Bass ukes and Mando's

Excellent rods. They really helped me reinforced a 5-stringed bass neck. Rods are very stiff and extremely light weighted.

Poorly shaped

The section of these rod is not rectangular: on each of the narrow sides there is a seam protruding some. To seat it well on a rectangular channell, you have to scrape those sides flat; not fun on carbon fiber...

Carbon rod reinforcing

I've used these a number of times and since I have the custom router bit, I continue to use them. They work well, and fit nicely. You can really see how much stiffer the neck is with these installed. In the photo you can see them installed along with a two way adjustable truss rod in a blank for a headless neck.

just a little bit to thick. I got the 1/8"s and with my 1/4" truss rod, had to hammer the whole thing in

Very thin neck? carbon fiber rods is the right choice

Great For Building, Hit Or Miss For Repairing

By

When we were building flattops these products went in all the necks to supplement the truss rod and in that application they seemed to add a good bit of stiffness.

In repair jobs they can help but if you have a real noodle neck, like some early 70's Martin instruments had they may not help on their own without a compression refret.

There used to be a motto on the wall at the old Colling's shop that said "We Fought The Flaw And The Flaw Won." If the neck is built from flawed wood these rods are just a band-aid.

Oh Yeah!!!!

With a hot rod truss rod and 4 (yes, four!) carbon fiber rods in my guitar neck, I'm shure that it won't break!
If I throw my guitar on the floor, the floor will break!
And my instrument remains in tune even after a whole concert! FANTASTIC!

Carbon truss rod

I picked up an old John Grey and Sons London 5 string banjo that was being keep straight with eyelet screws and metal strings. I routered the back of the neck and set the rod in with epoxy. I then glued a piece of wood in the groove, sanded and finished the neck. The neck is now straight and solid. The product didn't add any extra weight. I have been sitting on this project for over a year and this was the best solution.

I've used these Carbon Rods to reinforce my 5 string bassnecks, they are excellent! Also the shipping time was very fast, StewMac has the right stuff! It's a shame they don't have a shop in the Netherlands.
