Thanks, Bodia is correct. The single truss rod has threads on each end. The nut is not removable and attached at the top. So basically two sets of threads with two nuts and a welded nut at the end that turns the whole rod. The only thing I am not sure about now is what kind of a curved channel...
I have always been under the impression that my core PRS guitars have a dual truss rod system in the neck. What I mean by this is 2 rods installed as one piece, one being shorter than the other that can provide back bow turning the nut tight or can provide relief loosening the nut. So I am...
I honestly don't remember paying shipping but the cloudy part for me was buy the volume know and along the neck where the rosewood joins the fingerboard. It may be easier to just plan a trip to the PRS experience 2018 and drop it off.
I have the same color and mine was a 2012. It was refinished under warranty. If you let it go it will spread all over. Bite the bullet pay the shipping and wait for it to come back. Mine has been good with no issues for a few years now since the refinish.
I have the Vela and I recently bought a fender Baja telecaster, which is great. The Vela can get close. I have been playing both through a fender 57 custom shop deluxe amp and I can tell you the vela neck pickup through that amp is awesome Bridge sounds are different.
Vaughn, If you want to hear some new music check out my new album. It is on Iheartradio and Spotify now. C.L. Clark - Immortal. Immortal is a concept album and the lyrics are on my website if Interested.
