I decided to give a go at taking off the truss rod nut on my Agile LP to measure for a replacement this morning since it's all stripped out. What I didn't realize is that the nut was tack welded to the truss rod, except it isn't anymore because when I gave it one last good stout turn it made a sickening "SNAP!" to which I immediately said "well that didn't sound good," and this came out: https://imgur.com/a/jlu69SB you can clearly see where the metal/tack weld was shorn off by my big manly strength (but seriously, I didn't use that much force) I can find something to thread back on there easily enough, but my concern at this point is that the truss rod screw action is happening at the base of the neck, not at the headstock, and so unless I can tack weld something back on there (spoiler alert: I cannot) it seems a lot like my guitar is fucked. Not sure what I'm asking for. Maybe there's something I missed? Otherwise, press F to pay respects I guess. Ultimately I was always prepared for the possibility that learning how to fix guitars would destroy this one, I've certainly gotten my $180 worth out of it. I guess I should've called them before I started cranking on it.
