I was currently working on my project of building a guitar, and I am working on the neck right now. I see everything about the truss rod channel. I was wondering, how exactly do you install a truss rod channel, with the truss rod, and where can I get one?

You could probably find one on ebay or a local guitar equipments shop... or even build your own.

There are a couple of different types with different lengths, find the right one matching your neck/scale. Either a straight or a slightly bent rod... make sure to turn the right side up.

Route a canal in the neck, straight for a dito rod or a channel that's the deepest in the middle for a curved rod. Fill the remaining cavity with a fitting stick of wood.
The ends of the rod should be squred aswell as it's "back" towards the wood.

It's way easier if you put the adjustment point up at the headstock instead of down by the body like some models. (where you have to remove the neck off to adjust it)
