Truss Rod Snapped?
That is when I noticed that the string was laying on the first 3-4 frets and the neck had a clear dip at the nut end. I checked the truss rod with the EBMM tool and the truss adjustment wheel had an inch of play (looking at the end of the tool not in the wheel).
Using my Neck Check gauge, there is a distinct dip starting at the 5th fret…I am assuming the truss rod either snapped or let completely loose some how. I have never adjusted the truss rod on this particular guitar, but have on some of my other EBMM/SbMM guitars.
Can I replace the truss rod alone? You can actually here it moving inside the neck.
