Stew mac Double action truss rod placement
I am going to be installing an 18" double action truss rod in to a strat style solid guitar neck that i am building.
The truss rod access will be at the headstock. Im having trouble deciding where i should make the route. Looking at other fenders, the route only goes about half way to the second fret, but i understand that they are single action truss rods.
To have the access at the head stock, it looks like I'm going to have to start the route just before the nut slot.
As i cannot find any info online about how this is done, does anyone know whether this is a good placement or not?
