    I’ve mentioned that several times before.

    Anyway, not that I’m recommending trashing a new expensive guitar, but if you ever decide that you’re never going to part with any vintage style truss rod guitar, here's what I did to my 2018 Fender Road Worn 50s Strat:

    Now truss rod adjustments are a breeze...

    The 62 style pickguards used on the Road Worn 60s have a token notch at the truss rod, but it’s not deep enough to actually use. I’m not sure why they bothered.
