Nice tool

It’s small but does a good job with a Tele. It was a good idea StewMac keep it up.

Great for the Tight Squeeze

By

Verified Buyer


I remember using normal flat-head screw drivers years ago to tighten Tele truss rods. Until a year ago, that's what I had always done. So, I figured I'd give the StewMac Truss Rod Crank for Tele a try. Yes, it gets into the truss rod nut nicely. The offset angled end is really helpful, too. And, it also worked on my Srat's 50's style truss rod nut. That was a tight squeeze. Five Stars, indeed !!!

Finally...something that saves you from having to completely remove the neck to make truss rod adjustments. Thanks StewMac.

Buy this tool!!!

This ingenious tool enabled easy truss rod adjustment on my '58 reissue Telecaster after removing the pickguard only. The height of the neck pickup precluded use of a screwdriver. Well worth its price!

This tool saved a lot of money for me in setup spending, and guitar centers hate it all over the country!

A good idea and valuable tool - Stew Mac heel truss rod wrench

By

Verified Buyer


Purchased this to use with a heel-truss Fender Jaguar and it does the job. No need to remove the neck anymore. On my particular guitar, however, you do have to remove the pickguard to access the truss. I also notched the wood a bit right in front of the truss rod nut for easier access (hidden by pickguard). All in all, though, this tool makes setups much easier and faster. It is also a nicely machined piece that, I believe, is indicated to be made in Germany. Recommended.

This is just what I needed for truss rod adjustments to my Fender American Vintage Reissue '62 Jazz bass and '57 Precision basses. Highly recommended!
