Title: Truss rods
Post by: bassbob on May 08, 2007, 05:54:10 PM
There was a guy posting on all the Ric forums, trying to get a replacement truss rod for his 4003. Apparantly, everyone is out of stock. He was considering taking someone's advice that he go to Home Depot and buy a threaded rod and make his own. While I have no doubt that a guy like Dane or Matt or Joey could do this easily, I didn't think this guy should try it, after all, he broke the truss rod in the first place. I suggested he contact Dale F. to have some new ones made (which he did, thankfully). I hate to see someone screw up their bass. Hopefully Dale will hook him up and all will be well.
