I'm curious about their decision to stop using adjustable trussrods in favor of a fixed aluminum reinforcement bar.
-How will this affect tone?
-What about the longevity of the guitar?
I was sort of thinking of buying a Manouche, but the change has got me worried. I understand that's the way original Selmers were built, but i considered the trussrod an improvement, even high level luthiers like Dupont use them.
If Manouche wants to get even closer to Selmers shouldn't changing the neck wood to walnut have priority?
I feel the lack of possibility to adjust neck relief seriously limits setup, but...
Am I exaggerating?
