    I don’t know, the advertising I can find does not mention a truss rod so perhaps not?
    It does have a ply top though.....

    Thank you for your reply fox!
    I asked the question to a store that sells this guitar and they confirmed to me that it possesses a truss rod.

    FWIW my AT14 does have a truss rod. It's adjusted at the body end so nothing visible on the headstock.

    I have looked at these because I like the wider nut on them and the general appearance and sound from a couple of short youtube videos. Sent a couple of questions about set up to a US vendor and never heard back so, still thinking...wish it had a solid top for the price.

    Wow, that is wide. Don't know if I'd like that.

    I have an Oscar Schmidt baritone uke with approximately the same width nut as the Ashbury tenor guitar and have grown to like the spacing it gives for finger style picking.

    It's the left hand (ooo that's exclusionary. Sorry!)... it's the fretting hand I wonder about.

    Hi guys, I'm looking at an Ashbury AT-40 at the moment. Has anyone played one? How is it if so?

    Of all their tenors it's the lindisfarne cutaway one that appealed to me most. Not cheap but cheaper than others!
    I did also try one of the cutaway ozark ones and I thought it a sweet strumming kind of tenor
