Mats dodgy wood. Always get one.

Post by Westbone on Fri Apr 08, 2016 6:52 am

Know the feeling when your truss rod won't adjust anymore and there's still a big bow in your neck.

Here's a Mats Washburn with that symptom.



The anchour(washer) had pulled into the timber 'till the rod was no longer functional.






I'll insert some hardwood bits in.


Cleaned up the thread and away we go.
A bit of fingerboard broke away whilst removing it but will be fine when regluded.

Nice fix Damian.
That thread looks a bit buggered up too? Seems well enough out of the way though...

Good work!

I did similar with a strat neck, the anchor was tiny and had drawn into the wood, I cut a slot and trimmed a nice thick steel washer to fit, worked a treat.

what's the guitar?

Chaps... this may have been covered someplace else, but what's the best way to remove the fretboard? I'd kind of like to see the process, eh....

Yeah there was a broken nut down there that someone had put in as a spacer but had broken into many pieces.

You can also see in the first pic. a brass spacer, note how it had flared out as the rod ran out of thread.
