Neck Reinforcement on Afterbuner II

The double expanding style is one of the industry standards.  However, our method of installation – taught to us by Glenn McDougall of Fury Guitars, involves gluing the truss rod into the neck under almost 1000-LB of pressure. This creates a coupling of steel to wood, minimizing dead spots and increasing both sustain and harmonic content.

“While repairing guitars, I found that many guitars had either stripped or missing truss rod cover plate screws.  I found it frustrating that it usually took longer to remove and replace the cover plate than it did to do the actual adjustment.”

The truss rod is the most commonly adjusted component on most guitars, so access to the truss rod adjustment should be as easy as possible.

All Dingwall basses feature easy to access truss-rod adjustments.

We install dual carbon fiber reinforcements in Walnut Afterburner II necks.  This stiffens the Walnut and also increases sustain and clarity.
