Well it's time to make the truss rods, I like to have them installed in the necks before I glue them in the bodies. We're going to cut 3/16" round rod into 18" lenths, Thread one end with a 10-32 die, bend a 45 on the end of the 1/8th X 1/4th flat stock, and drill a hole in it so the round rod can pass through, weld one end, I make the truss rod nuts out of 1/4" hex, drill, tap and saw into 1/2" lenths "Wa La" Adjustable truss rods.
Well the truss rods are installed. Now it's time to glue the necks into the bodies.
Well, the glue is dry, I've pulled all of my clamps off, took my Sears and Roebuck router and a couple of routing Jig I've made, routed all the pickup cavitys, the two '59 Maphis' are also routed for a recessed vibrato units "Just like the originals", I've drilled all the holes for the pickup wires and the ground wires that go under the vibratos. I like to get all this done before I start painting.
