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.

Strengthening a square-tube Martin truss rod

Dan Erlewine's doing a neck reset on a Martin that has a square-tube truss rod. While he has the neck off, he shows how to improve the truss rod before regluing the neck.

Fixing a warped neck with carbon fiber

This early-50s Harmony StratoTone has no truss rod, and the neck is warped. Dan Erlewine repairs it by installing carbon fiber neck rods. The week after this repair was done, another copper-colored StratoTone came in with the same problem!

Makes an old neck Stable

By

Verified Buyer


I restore OLD stringed pieces and these rods are the least invasive way for stabilizing necks. After straightening with my homemade "traction device", I route a groove and epoxy in a carbon fiber rod. Then, re-glue the original fb, or a new one as needed. It's hidden and effective.

Now I have a stiff neck

(#1) I have an Epiphone Les Paul that popped the peg head off in the typical Les Paul manner. Not a nice loooonnnnngggg break, but a short right at the nut snap. (2) The first repair was great until the guy I gave it to snapped it the same way the it happened the first time, then strap button let go. (#3) The third repair popped when a 250 pound guy fell on it in the back of a truck on the way to a gig. (#4) the neck has been so compromised it never really held at all. I was about to completely give up on the Les Paul, but when together it does have a very nice sound. With so many breaks the neck looked awful so there was nothing to loose. So, let the games begin. I got Marine-tex, the best epoxy glue in the world. Used a router to remove 1/8" from the top of the peg head and the bottom. Then glued the head back on making sure to glue the broken chips back in place. Then used a dremel tool to route two channels ~4" long from the neck up into and through the peg head. Inserted two pieces of this carbon rod in place filling the channel with Marine-Tex. After filing and sanding everything back to factory Les Paul shape a 1//8" top plate with a nice Walnut burl veneer and bottom plate went on the Peg Head to cover part of the channel slots. It isn't like new pretty looking, but close your eyes, by feel you would never know the neck was broken. This rod or these rods made the neck repair VERY stiff and extremely solid. The old girl won't be loosing her head any time soon, I like it.

Great Sustain!

Needed a new neck for a '70s Les Paul Black Beauty, and I like thin necks, so I built one with a carbon fibre rod on each side of the adjustable truss rod. Les Pauls have legendary sustain, but this one now beats them all.

I'm making my first baritone ukuleles and decided to put a carbon fiber rod into the neck. Easily done and I'm sure it will keep the neck level. No photo yet but will add a photo when the instrument is finished.
