Pocket-size steel hex wrenches that fit in your guitar case. The 1-1/8" (28.58mm) socket is tapered to fit into recessed truss rod access cavities.

For 5/16" Gibson and other hex truss rod nut sizes.

Our veteran guitar technicians developed these high quality steel truss rod wrenches for the repair shop. The length, durability, and variety of sizes let you perform truss rod adjustments efficiently.

Not all truss rod cavities are the same width. Make sure the wrench will fit your cavity by comparing the outer diameter of the wrench barrel to your guitar.

Bought the whole set

These little guys are cheap enough to buy the whole set. I picked them up to replace the odd balls I had for my shop bench. Nothing works like them when you need the bullet shaped head to get in the tight spaces for those grunged up old vintage axe truss rod slots. The shipping folks sent a duplicate of the 1/4" size and left out the 5/16" one. A simple call to the customer service folks and the correct one was shipped out the same day and arrived before I was looking for it.

Works Great!

Awesome. I was fixing up a friend's Jackson and I ended up needing one of these to straighten out the neck. I ordered one and in a few days it arrived and I got straight to work. The results were greater than I had expected them to be. The only things that could be improved is to shorten the point at the end of it. It makes it a little difficult to take out of the truss rod cavity sometimes. And the handle needs to be welded to the cap. Other than that, it's a necessity to the work I do.

High quality tool

Ok I didn't really want to pay this much for a tool that comes free with a lot of guitars (hint to Taylor) but this is a well made wrench with high quality plating. I recommend it.

Yep, it is a truss rod wrench

Nothing fancy here, just a well made tool that Gibson decided not to put in the case of the $2,700 guitar they sold me. Guess they were afraid I might damage the merchandise.

Not as good as I thought

By Leo Crossfield from UK
(Customer's Reviews) Thursday, September 06, 2012

I have just written a review on the entire set of truss rod wrenches which are a great set.

However one of these little guys gave me a lot of grief. I was working on an Ibanez K7 seven string which has an awful truss rod pocket - deep and square walls all around it. The pocket wrench fitted it beautifully and due to the domed bullet shape slid in nicely - getting it back out was another matter.

Sadly it was stuck and as I tried to wiggle it free the metal handle came out of the hole - it is actually a push fit and not integrally welded to the socket. I had a devil's own job to get the smooth round slippery bugger out of the deep square truss rod pocket. On finally getting it out I realised that the point of the bullet needs grinding flat (unnecessarily long) to reduce its length and the handle needs to be welded to the socket - trying to push the handle back in is no easy task as the socket is bullet shaped and difficult to hold it still to press or hammer the handle back into its hole. I failed to get the handle well seated into it so need to make a jig to stop the socket moving.

So I have some work to do on this at some point before I use it again. Shame really as it could easily have been great if manufactured better with a weld.

Useful tool to have but the head of it could be a bit smaller for a more snug fit into the truss rod slot.

Still worked though.
