Back to the build! Nick wanted the truss rod on his guitars to be adjustable under tension, which led to another innovation: The truss rod is accessed through a hole in the top of the peghead.
Nick initially got the idea from a “T-handled Allen wrench with a ball driver manufactured by Bondhus”. The ball-end of the wrench can engage the nut at the end of the truss rod at up to 15 degrees off axis.
This means having to drill a very precise hole through the length of the peghead, so Nick created a heavy-duty jig that attaches to the peghead and guides the drilbit.
