Spoke Wheel Truss Rod Nut
DescriptionSpoke Wheel Truss Rod Nut
Adjusts a bolt-on neck at the heel. The spoke wheel truss rod nut allows you to adjust the neck while it's still bolted on, and without removing the pickguard.
The 1/2"-diameter spoke nut is designed to protrude slightly from the neck heel; insert a thin tool into the side of the nut to turn it. Spoke wheel truss rod nuts have a 10-32 thread, are 1-1/8" length, and have a black oxide finish.
