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; 2-1/4" 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.

stripped out truss rod nut

old fender truss rod nut, hadn't been moved in years; 1/8 allen wrench rounded it out inside slightly; aaaarrghh! Read about Gripper wrenches on line, bought the 1/8th size. Cut back the tip till it was a tight fit, took off two of the guitars tuners(strat)to make room for the wrench's shaft; PERFECT. Really saved my bacon. Didnt have to take out the walnut plug etc. Couldnt have hoped for a better result.

Truss Nut Woes

Was setting up/cleaning a late '70s Jazz bass. Nearly finished the set up...when my allen wrench failed. Well, wasn't the Allen wrench that failed... I quickly ordered this along with a new bullet truss nut in 1/8" The first attempt didn't yield much more than my allen wrench. So I wound up gently tapping it in a bit to get a better bite and Voila!!!!! it came right out. Never EVER going to be without this...and will most likely order the rest of them

this should be the one to get...

I could see that the truss rod allen screw was starting to round out... this tool effortlessly allowed me to adjust the truss rod without stripping or slipping.

Highly recommended, if you need a truss rod wrench, get one of these.

Works as advertised

Used it on a stripped Epiphone truss the day I received it. Cannot imagine the cost of replacing the truss rod, so this little tool presents a good business case.

Just get them!

I found the set to be my go to truss rod key. Truss rods are never consistent and even if its 1/8 it does not mean a 1/8 key will fit. I would recommend these over the standard hex set. They paid for themselves with two setups. I wish they had the sizes printed on them, but a marker took care of that.

Great wrench after a little tweak

I used this for my 2004 Highway 1 Strat which had it's rod jammed. As I lost the original Fender key I initially tried a regular 1/8 allen key but the hex was fractionally too small, which resulted in the key becoming worn.

I got the Stew Mac 1/8 truss rod wrench but the length of the taper was a little too long for the depth of the nut so it couldn't grab the nut properly. I filed away some of the length of the wrench and then it worked perfectly.

Saved my Strat!

my truss rod had been stripped for a year or so and nothing would work until I found this tool. Worked like a charm no slipping or any more damage done to truss rod. Thank you StewMac
