Details

Dang! Somebody used the wrong size wrench, and now you can't adjust that worn Allen truss rod nut. Fear not, our Gripper wrenches can save the day!

Each wrench has a 3/8"-long end that tapers from slightly undersize to slightly oversize, giving you a snug fit to turn the nut and avoid a costly replacement job.

Our veteran guitar technicians developed these high quality steel truss rod wrenches. The length, comfortable rubberized handles, durability and variety of sizes let you perform formerly difficult truss rod adjustments with ease. The straight wrenches are 12-1/2" long, keeping your knuckles safely away from the peghead.

#6210-G Gripper wrench has a special angled handle for tuner clearance on 6-in-line pegheads. For 1/8" Allen nut; 2" reach.

Special notes for the soundhole wrenches
4mm is for Hot Rod truss rods. #6110-G is for pre-August 2007 Martins; #6114-G and #6212-G are for later Martins. Triple-bend wrenches provide clearance under the guitar's braces.

Didn't work

Strat truss rod must be too rounded, too stripped. Because this tool didn't work. Wasted my money. Strat truss rod problem unsolved.

Great tool, with caveat

By
(Customer's Reviews)


This tool helped me save a great strat neck that had its truss rod nut horribly ham-handed by a previous owner. I say "with caveat" because I had to file down the end a bit before it would grip. But that's still way, way easier than trying to jerry-rig one of these myself. Maybe a bit overpriced for what it is, but completely worth it for how much money and work it can save you if you have a stuck truss rod nut.

very helpful

These wrenches are helpful. If you have a nut that is SLIGHTLY stripped, they can help enormously. You could always make your own, but for 10 bucks why would you? They also work really well just as your everyday truss rod tool when there is room for the wrench to fit around tuners and string trees.

Gripper Truss Rod Wrench

Just got a 1/8" wrench from Stewmac for my strat and it fits perfect, my nut wasn't stripped but I hate using those wretched hex keys - didn't have to remove any tuners either - If your nut is overtight or hasn't been touched for a long time, save yourself a major headache & get one, I reckon these should come standard with any new guitar - Thanks Stewmac!

Truss Rod Wrenches

By
(Customer's Reviews)


I purchased a Gibson 'Fern' F5 mandolin in Nashville six years ago but within three years the neck developed a slight warp. David Harvey (of Gibson) told me that I didn't need to send it back under guarantee as "any competent guitar 'tech'" could do the job. Having built guitars and mandolins myself through the previous 50 years, all I would need were the tools. The Stewmac catalogue quoted the required size for the hex rod but it didn't fit. Gibson had made a change around 2003 to 2005. I returned the wrench with a size sample. On receipt of the correct size, the job was done easily with help from 'Trade Secrets'. A subsequent purchase of a Gibson 2009 'Goldrush' F5 had another size so that was ordered along with one for my Martin guitar but I was sent the wrong item by mistake. Before I even had time to return the wrong one, the correct item was sent to me 'express'. When I returned it, my postage cost was deducted from the next order. Ohio is a long way from the UK but Stewmac might as well be just next door when it comes to efficient, friendly and speedy service!

Amazing!

The Gripper saved my Telecaster. A professional guitar repair person told me the rounded truss rod adjustment nut couldn't be fixed and my only option was a new neck. I bought The Gripper and In 30 seconds could both tighten the rod and remove to rounded nut for replacement. Best money I ever spent.

Great design

If you have ever had to work behind someone who didn't use the right tool adjusting the truss rod, these tools can make you look like a hero. The only thing I wish is that a size indicator label was put on the handle, as most drivers have. Thanks Stewmac, great tool.
