Need info on JTV-69 US neck

Recommended Posts

Why does the US version of the JTV-69 not have a two-way truss rod?  i.e. why can't I turn it counter-clockwise and forward bow the neck?  I assumed it was two-way, but the nut simply started coming off.

The neck I have was ref-retted, which is probably why it now has back-bow.  There is zero tension on the truss rod.  How difficult is it to install a 2-way truss-rod?  I love the feel of the neck.  It just needs a tiny tweek!

There was a discussion around here a while back in which the powers that be chimed in, indicating that all the JTV's do have a dual action truss rod. As handy as they are, there's still a limit to how far you can go in either direction, and it seems you've hit your relief limit. Since it's been re-fretted, I'm guessing you bought it used? If so, God only knows what was done to it, or how it was (or wasn't) maintained before you got it.
