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.

Truss Rod stripped on Ovation Adamas

By

Verified Buyer


I am so hurt about my 1981 Adamas II. I used the wrong Allen wrench on the truss rod and stripped out the Truss rod socket. I was hoping so much that the Gripper Wrench from Stewmac would fix my problem. It did not do the job. The action is still too high from Fret 7 upward. I don't know what to do now. God gave me this guitar in 1982 and I have loved her since then. Our local guitar tech won't touch her. The Gripper Wrench is a great idea in the hands of a true Guitar Repairman like Dan.

Absolutely Amazing!

While attempting to get my Strat Plus set up properly after making some bridge changes, I was struggling with allen wrenches that didn't fit well, were hard to grip, and left me fearing that i would strip/destroy my truss rod. So I stopped what I was doing and ordered the Gripper. Within a couple minutes of it's arrival I made my final adjustment and moved on to enjoying my instrument. The wrench dropped right into the socket and gripped as I adjusted, with no slipping or hesitation whatsoever. Absolutely amazing. Buy this tool!

Fantastic!

Best thing that ever happened to modern-style American Fender truss rods. The Gripper wrench works perfectly on 1/8" nuts that have been slightly rounded by someone with a 3 mm wrench.

I was having doubts with this one, it works great, i thought that my bass was screwed, i change the stripped truss rod screw for a new one in less than 10 min and its like brand new now. It didnt dissapoint, it worth every penny!

a neck saver

I picked up a freebee Fender bass, and it had been sitting for decades. When I tried to set it up, I saw someone buggere he truss rod nut BAD!!! I tried all my allens, and even ground a few to try to get it loosened.. No go... Figured I would give this a try before I went shopping for a new neck... It took a whole 30 seconds to get the trussrod nut off using this!!! It was amazing!! WELL worth the money, and I'm cheap!!

I honestly cannot say enough good things about the Gripper wrenches. I recently found a 1997 California series Stratocaster in a beautiful candy apple red color for sale at my local music store. The guitar was on consignment and was an absolute steal. Got her home, restrung it, started my set up all seemed really good. After awhile (of having much much heavier strings on it) I noticed the relief was a bit more than I cared for on my necks. I went to fine tweak the truss rod and sure enough it was completely stripped. I was about to return the guitar when I found this on Stew Mac and thought for $20 shipped I would give it a try. Dropped it down into the truss nut and low and behold it gripped and began to turn. Super product, a little more expensive than seems necessary, but considering it saved me a return on a super guitar or even a replacement neck (which is honestly a bit of a deal breaker) I really cannot complain. It does what it says it does and saved my Candy Apple Red baby. Thank you, for engineering such an awesome tool. Loved it so much, I am going to buy a set of the regular hex adjustment wrenches as well. So easy to get to the nut and not mess with a short hex key or scraping my knuckles against strings/tuners. Again couldn't be happier with it.
