Installing new truss rod on Rickenbacker4001

This bass had a bad trussrod and the rod broke . so I suggested to take out the 2 trussrod and fill the cavity with maple to install single trussrod.

Here I am glueing a thin piece( about 3/16″ thick)of rosewood , because the neck was so thin I had to build up some wood so I can install doube acting trussrod!
