Rover Truss Rod Adjustment
« on: January 19, 2008, 03:58:44 PM »
Has anyone been able to get to the nut inside the sound hole to do an adjustment on a Rover.  I pulled mine out after a year or so and it has a bow that renders is useless.  There is some sort of flat brace, akin to the Martin popsicle stick, right in front of the screw-head and I can't get the wrench into it.

Any ideas?

It don't mean a thing if it ain't got eight strings.

My correct email is gregajones@hotmail.com

Of all the acoustics I've seen with adjusters at the body end of the guitar it's either lower than that brace or there's a hole drilled through the brace for access. You may end up having to drill the access hole yourself. There are Rover owners here and I'm sure someone will check for you soon.
