Truss Rod Nut - Is this right?

Truss Rod Nut - Is this right?

Postby 4 Strings » Mon Nov 16, 2015 3:17 pm

My red Wunkay, to which I am becoming more and more fond, has this for a truss rod nut.

Sticks out a bit doesn't it? It works perfectly, but has someone replaced it with one too long?

Normal for '80s-era basses.

and.... relax.

Thank you!

(I had searched for a pic of a similar nut but found only less protuberant examples.)

Hey, another one! Thanks Ken!

Not so much a bullet truss rod as a missile!

Is there a club for Magnum truss rod nuts? (As in nuts who are interested in truss rods!)

Nope. No clubs, official or otherwise; no numbers. Just bass.
