Bolt on neck question

Post by gtrbill on Mon Aug 01, 2011 9:29 am

So I'm playing my Pro C25RH this morning ... When I'm done I go to put it in the case and I hear a thump inside the guitar. What I believe is the bolt for the neck is laying inside the body! It just decided to fall out! The neck joint has significant play, which I hadn't noticed before. Now I'm trying to figure out where the bolt actually came from. All I see is the nut for the truss rod adjustment just inside the sound hole. There is all another spot further down the neck block that has an allen head adjustment. I don't see any gaping hole where a bolt is missing. Anybody with any suggestions???

Never mind. Once I got a mirror and a smaller set of hands the probelem went away.



Have any of you experienced the neck bolt backing out?

Hey Bill, nope. Never have had that issue. Seems strange that it even could. It's back in with no issues though?

It was the strangest thing, the way it just fell out. I was able to locate the bolt hole with a mirror but then I had a hard time getting my gnarly old fingers in there to tighten the bolt. I had on of the girls in the office get it threaded in. The smaller hands helped. Once it was tightened up it seems fine.
