One negative issue, nasty burr on center tightening hole.

watch out for the brass nuts

By

Verified Buyer


I found that the acorn nuts provided were too malleable, and started to strip pretty easily.

I had never worked with a hanger bolt before the fact that they were only ever called "neck bolts" in the instructions, made looking into how they work a hassle.

Over all a good product, but has room for improvement.

A client brought in a 70's era 5 string banjo that the neck angle adjustment had been stripped. These were perfect replacement rods. Happy client means a happy repair person.

Dual Rim rod set

By

Verified Buyer


Received the rim rod set, along with other parts needed for a tenor banjo. The only complaint I would have about them are the neck attachment screws which seem quite flimsy.
