Noted the adjustment nut is missing from the truss rod-see photo. Is this a fairly easy fix, or am I looking at replacing the truss rod? I’m pretty handy with this stuff, but don’t want to be ripping apart this thing for a $150 guitar. Thoughts?
I am not an expert and never fixed something like this. AFAIK, luthiers in here are not replacing truss rod if it is still working. And truss rod nut is replaceable. You just have to find the nut that will fit there.
Ground wire question - does it attach to the bridge anchor, or a tailpiece anchor? I pulled the tailpiece anchors and plugged the holes with wood, replaced the tailpiece with a maestro trem. I plugged the guitar in for the first time and it’s buzzy as hell unless I touch the output jack, seems like a ground issue to me. I opened the electronics cavity and the ground wire leads into the body and appears to be attached to something inside - I pull on it and it doesn’t budge. Thoughts?
