Anyone have a source for 1/2" steel t bar for neck reinforcement. They used to be sold as sled runners, but sled runners have a different shape now.

The steel in the t bar is a hair under 3/32" thick, (.095 I think), and 1/2" X 1/2".

Is Martin still using them in the Authentics?

Pretty sure Japarts here in Vancouver can set you up. He gave me one a few years back but I don't trust non adjustable trusses...

Thanks for the info. They show them on their website, so I ordered some, paid for them, and just got this email:

I've just refunded your payment. We will still be sending you the bridge pins you ordered but the truss rods have been discontinued. I'm very sorry for the inconvenience
