Subject: RE: Help: Truss Rods in Martins?
Actually, the ebony bars were from WWII, when metal was not available for piddling things like guitars. Figure mid-1943 to early 1946 or so. You'd think it'd have started earlier, but my 0-18, which I'm picking up from the Martin repair shop Friday (I can hardly wait) has a thin neck, undoubtedly steel-reinforced.
