Truss rod and fretboard replacement on a very cool custom guitar
This very cool looking custom guitar came into the shop with the neck bowed so far forward that the truss rod couldn't compensate, and ultimately broke, and needed replacement.
After trying for some time, we found that the fretboard had been epoxied to the neck and could not be removed by normal methods.
To get to the truss rod channel, we had to rout the fretboard away, meaning we will have to build a new one.
Here, we have placed the new double-action truss rod in the neck and it is ready for the new fretboard.
On the new fretboard, the customer opted to add white binding and have no fret markers on the playing surface.
We then installed the new frets on the playing surface. once everything has been completed here, we will add the new bone nut and reassemble the guitar.
