OK, thanks partly to advice from posters here I'm, once again, considering a Jimmy Moon mandolin.
Everything I hear about them is good, but (probably 'cause I'm a guitarist of many years) I am worried by the fact that the standard Moon mando doesn't have an adjustable truss rod.
I contacted Moon Guitars, and they were very prompt with their reply. They said that they don't put in a truss rod as standard, as Jimmy reckons the neck is stronger without the wood removed. They also say they can add a truss rod for £50.
What do you guys think?
Is the absence of an adjustable truss rod of serious concern? Does it seriously limit set-up options?
Advice and thoughts appreciated. Thanks.
