Adjusting the Truss Rod on a 1974 D-28

by Preston

Just purchased 1974 Martin D-28 serial #335191. Want to adjust truss rod but there is no hole to insert wrench. How do I adjust it?

Thanks

ANSWER

Hi, Preston--

You should be able to find a hole which fits a 5 millimeter hex key in the brace under the fingerboard.

It might be best to take it to a qualified luthier, considering the age of the guitar.

Martin truss rods?
by: Anonymous

Hold on here....do Martin guitars even HAVE an
adjustable truss rod?

If the neck is warped or bowed, it needs attention from
a qualifed Martin repair shop.
