Warmoth Super Bass Neck Construction
The Warmoth Super Bass neck combines our double-expanding truss rod with two steel or graphite stiffening bars for the most stable, playable, and best sounding bass replacement neck on the market.
Double Expanding Bass Neck Truss Rod
At the heart of every Super Bass neck is Warmoth's double-expanding truss rod. This rod design greatly enhances neck stability, and contributes to longevity because the rod's inward compression is absorbed by the rod itself, rather than the neck wood.
Benefits of the double expanding truss rod
- Extremely stable, seasonal adjustments are rarely necessary
- No end to end wood compression to eventually distort the neck
The stiffening bars installed on either side of the truss rod in Super Bass necks enhance stability and add mass, which helps to eliminate dead spots. Steel is standard. Graphite bars are also available for an additional $60. Our graphite bars are over-sized for steel-like rigidity with less weight, and exhibit a warmer tone.

- Clean and clear notes

Graphite Stiffening Bars
