im planning on building a guitar with a set neck, 24 frets, and a 25.5" scale length.

im going to order a truss rod off of stew mac today and a tool which cuts the truss rod to a chosen size. the truss rod comes with a length of 24 inches, what length should i cut it down to?

edit: im going to buy a one way truss rod
here is my neck plan, if someone could mark off where the truss rod should end that would be great

huh can you link to the truss rod you are going to buy? I wasnt aware they sell a truss rod you can cut to length.

18" is good for electric guitars.

Why dont you just get a dual action hot rod and keep it simple?
