I was working on restoring my vintage broken guitar neck and it looks like new and the Truss Rod works great inside my 80s Fender Squier.

Beefier than most

By

Verified Buyer


I bought this to repair a bass with a thin neck. The dual action truss rod turned out to be insufficient and led to cracking of the neck. My hope is that this one, being more substantial, will be better for this particular neck. If doing a replacement, be forewarned that you will probably have to widen the channel beyond what is normally called for.

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!
