    Dual action truss rod rattle

    Being one who hates following threads that are unresolved I thought I would post an update. I know that pulling the fret board would have been the proper fix but having done that once already (twice actually) I felt that the fret boards wouldn't survive coming off again and would use that as my...

    Dual action truss rod rattle

    Yes, that is the truss rods I used. I have already had the fret boards off once due to bad clamping and barely managed to save them. before I installed the rods I did try wrapping them with Teflon tape but I did not like how it impeded movement so I took it off. My mistake. It sounds to me that...

    2 piece necks?

    2 piece necks?

    Hi all. Been lurking here for a couple years learning as much as I can from the great wealth of knowledge in the Luthier's Corner. I am currently building 2 Les Pauls and I'm at the stage of working on the necks and fret boards. My question is does anybody see a problem with 2pc laminated...
