Thanks. My tech, who's also a luthier, couldn't believe how strong poplar is as a wood. Why Harmony went to a truss rod flies in the face of the logic that the neck/neck wood contributes to a guitar's tone and thus if you eliminate some of mass by cutting in a truss rod, you alter/soften/weaken the tone. Comments ?Looks like Poplar to me.
Thanks - I'd forgotten 'bout the ' SRN'You're adding mass by installing a truss rod and most guitars (including Harmony) that don't have an ADJUSTABLE truss rod still have a non-adjustable truss rod. On your old Harmony that says "Steel reinforced neck"- it has a steel rod in the center.
Yes, I refinned the neck on mine and it sure looked like poplar.Looks like Poplar to me.
