Need to replace 335 truss rod nut; should I remove/loosen strings first?

Recommended Posts

Be sure you clean off the threads of the rod. If they're caked up with remnants of the softer brass nut, it will just strip out the next nut.


I had a J-50 where someone added washers to get the nut on the cleaner part of the thread. After I bought it, I made a die that fit my truss rod nut and cleaned of the thread then put on a new nut.


I believe StewMac makes a die for this.
