    Looking for one of my customers. He wants to tinker with it, and asked me to see if I could find him a replacement truss rod. I told him the guitar isn't worth much, and you could buy a good used one for not much more than the truss rod itself. The labor on a truss rod replacement is worth more than the guitar itself. But....He wants to mess with it, so I'm trying to locate one. What sayeth ye?

    Buy another Esteban on Craigslist, take a band saw to it, and liberate the truss rod, voila!
