Cheap Concord in Manchester UK

Post by The Don on Wed Jan 04, 2017 11:50 am

Seems too cheap at £60 - stolen ?

I mean if they are selling at £200-£250 on eBay then why not sell there ?

they're not selling anywhere near that price,  they're being advertised  at that price. 
I think the sanded headstock keeps this price low too,  but that neck is purrty

Certainly is but hidden away was a fooked truss rod.

No anchor washer so pulled into the neck until no adjustment was able. Sucks!

Will clean it up and replace it with a dual action type.  Looks like someone had a go at it in the past and filled it will some form of epoxy.

Bloody shame, so much rust on that rod! Are you able to clean up the groove by hand Damian, or does it need routing?

How would that have happened, the truss rod not having an anchor washer and the truss rod itself being so rusty ?

Well it looks like it's had a problem with the anchor washer pulling into the neck timber previously, hence the 'pool' of glue in the photo. Whoever fixed it didn't do a proper job as the whole rod was glued  in the neck rendering it useless.

Will route it out and put a new dual action rod in.
