    I am starting a project with a neck through and was wanting to use a spoke nut truss rod, but I have never seen one done on a through neck. I think I might give it a shot. Any feedback on this? Thanks so much!

    here is a photo that if you forget that its a bolt on neck the holes will still be the same.
    the only thing that you must get right on a neck through is the location and the sequence of the build.

    you can Study the Charvel guitars or the EVH guitars for ideas too.
    you'll simply need to rout your fretboard end, for an "access notch" for your spoke wheel
    and you will rout a similar "notch" or pocket in your neck blank. at the appropriate location. and do all this BEFORE you try to glue your body wings on

    after that, its all about the layout work and making accurate measurements.

    thats all there is to it. nothing weird or hard about it.
    I can think of a couple of easy methods to make a template for routing that consistantly and fast.
