Carbon rods are very hard and stiff and therefore ideal for reinforcing your neck. Especially with wider necks for 7-strings or when less stable wood is used, reinforcement with carbon rods can be essential to prevent the neck from twisting

. Route a slot of 6x6mm at approximately 1cm on both sides of your truss rod.
Draw your center line with a straight metal ruler and mark the start and finish of the length of the slot.

It is important that your carbon rod fits tight in the canal. Secure your neck at a height where you can easily work and have a good view. Make sure that you can move freely with the cutter and that nothing is in the way.

Use a router bit in the thickness of your carbon rod. Our rods are 6mm wide, but always measure for milling.

Set the height of your router at the height of the carbon rod so that it will fit exactly in the channel. Because the channel must be a straight line, it can be convenient to use a router bit with a bearing guide ring and place a guide on both sides of your channel. For example a straight wood board. Make sure it is longer than the channel, so that you can clamp them without them interfering your router.

After routing, clean the channel and test if the rod fits securely and the height is at level with your fretboard. Unless you have space for movement, it is not necessary to glue the rod in as excess glue from gluing your fretboard will also hold it in place. If there is some movement, and you are not sure, you can fix it in place with a little bit of thick instant glue like ZAP on the bottom.
