Default Truss Rod Insallation

The truss rod is installed.

The router guide is atop the neck.

The truss rod slot is routed along the center of the neck.

The rod is fitted into the slot.

The glue shield-a strip of mahogany, I believe- is fitted atop the rod.

Some rubber gasket compound is laid in the slot. This is insurance against rattles.

The rod is set in place.

Later, the glue shield in glued in place.

A brown truck eased into my space
My wife screamed somewhere
I struck a deal with the man at the Guitar-for-bills
I am the GASsing stranger
A fool in love, within compulsion mills
