Very happy

It’s a bit larger than most but seems to add wonderful stiffness to the neck. Very happy with this style of truss rod. Using it on everything right now.

Exactly what I needed.

This was exactly what I needed and the only place I could find it. I only had to square off the truss rod slot and I was back in business.

A perfect fix.

I have a short scale bass that needed a new truss rod. So a quick call to Stew Mac and they lead me to the proper size u channel truss I needed and some sound advice on replacing the rod and re-gluing the fret board. Now I have a solid straight neck with a functioning truss rod. Couldn't be happier.

This dropped into a 20 year-old Warmoth bass neck perfectly and works great!

Size changed from 7/16 to 12mm wide

By

Verified Buyer


I have always liked these truss rods, and installed several of them. I got my newest two today, and they have changed the width from 7/16 to 12 mm. I just had to order a new router bit to make this work, and will have to retool my neck jig.
Very unlike the StewMac Ive come to like so much!

Light and strong

I've found that a single action rod is all I need. These rods bend in the right place, and the construction gives plenty of confidence.
