I have this mental image now of trying to thread a wiresaw down the truss hole in order to cut a small v-notch for the wires, and I'm breaking a sweat just thinking of all the horrible ways that could go wrong :confused:
You're understanding my final goal ....but I didn't understand your question about me having access to the truss rod (which suggested I already had my guitar here in pieces) ....I was talking in general - obviously there's a truss rod in every guitar neck, but not being a truss rod expert (or neck expert), I have no idea how much space there is between the top of it (assuming the guitar is lying on its back) & the fretboard rear 'face'.
Does anyone know if there's typically a 'void' there already? (ie a gap between the truss rod & the fretboard)...these would be thin wires, though quite a few of them - about 11 wires in fact)
the reason i asked if you could still get the truss rod out is if there is enough room you will still have the problem of threading those wires, if the rod comes out it should be possible
I thought a typical truss rod could only be removed by taking off the fretboard? (which is what I'm trying to avoid doing)
im pretty sure (if my memory serves me) i had a jap strat that had a stopper nut at one end and was ajusted at the machine heads so im pretty sure that one would have come out
its worth exploring though if your going to make a few.... im pretty sure it would save some serious heart ache if you could find a way around drilling the full length
Truss rods are quite often fairly embedded in the neck,

but I concur, that if I can utilise any opportunities that existing channel presents, it's gotta be the way to go
And no i dont know anything about music as i didnt need too!!

i think i would sooner make a neck from scratch than go through all that pain of stripping one... now the drilling looks a bit less desprate
i think i would still try my best not to drill... what about removing the frets and cutting a funky (strategic) pattern in the fretboard and bonding the wiring behind an inlay ??
can LEDs be run in series ? how thin could you go with wiring ?
im going to have nightmares about drilling tonight:lol:
