Here's a couple of pics that illustrate how most truss rods are embedded in guitar necks and what they do:

Mike, 

You need a couple of drain plugs for it.

Incredible! How did you get the top cracks filled so effectively. In the comments under the picture you say, "Fill and level." What kind of material are you using to "fill" and when you say "level" do you mean with sandpaper? Can you provide a bit more details? Thanks!

I'm not sure why some of my photos go 90 degrees out but just **** your head to the Right.

I am playing with what Preamp to put back in. The Saddle was not working so I changed that out.

I am about 90% done fussing with the action, there is a wee bit of 12th fret hump. It sounds a little thinner than some other 1615s I've massaged but judging by the amount of hell this top went through I'm expecting a certain amount of settling in to take place.

Thanks for the side-ways pics detailing the materials used to level the soundboard finish. I just turned the pic right-side up on my PC. Just incredible work. How does she sound?
