    ooo - that's lovely.
    I never knew there was such a thing as sideways truss-rod adjustment - that's neat. I've also never seen that way of mounting the tuners either - that's also neat!

    Thanks. Yeah: that’s the Warmoth “modern” sideways truss rod adjustment. Very handy.
    HipShot came out with this new concept, so you don’t have to drill holes in the back of your headstock. They’re also very smooth and precise.

    Nice!
    I have a very similar neck on my Cabronita partscaster.
    Mine is a 59 Roundback but with a 1 3/4 inch nut width.
