Gripper Truss Rod Wrenches

About This Item

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.

Works great and beats the heck out of those little allan wrenches that sometimes don't quite work. And it's affordable too!

My other Allen wrenches were worn and slipping which, I thought, was going to lead to an expensive job to replace the truss-rod nut on my Strat - but this tool really does the job.

Here's one for the Gripper!

Like most guitar repair guys, I see the results of amateur guitar repair all the time. I find sloppy soldering jobs, ugly headstock repairs and a TON of stripped out truss rod nuts. A Fender Tele Deluxe came in for a refret and the inside of the truss rod nut had been wallowed out by something other than an 1/8" allen wrench. I grabbed my trusty Gripper and it gripped what was left of the nut and allowed me to adjust the neck. I think I'll buy all of them!

Excellent Tool!

I have used these to rescue several necks from the trash. They are perfect for cheaper guitars with soft truss rod nuts that have been munged by someone using the wrong size wrench or not inserting the wrench far enough.

I didn't have proper tools and I striped out the nut on my shcecter 8 string. This tool saved me from my mistake and now my guitar plays and feels amazing.

Ok, the neck on my used Fender Precision Bass had some truss rod nut issues. Whoever owned the bass before was careless when adjusting the truss rod and had rounded out the 5mm truss rod adjustment socket. I would have to loosen the strings whenever I wanted to adjust the neck because of the stripped socket. Since buying this tool I can now adjust the neck with full string tension on it. Very pleased with this purchase.
