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.

THIS is the wrench you need for 90's American Standard Strats and Tele's

This right angle wrench is perfect for use on 90's American Standard Fenders. ONE caveat- I actually found that it also did not grip the badly rounded off adjuster screw, in the strat I'm working on. Solution- I ground off a small amount of material from the end of the wrench, a little at a time, until it was just the right size to grip it.
A highly useful tool!

DO NOT HESITATE! AMAZING

When I was a kid back in 1991, I inherited a Yamaha acoustic of the same year. At some point I was overzealous with the wrong size Allen Wrench and rounded the Truss Rod nut! As the years passed I wanted to have it set up... new nut, frets dressed etc.so I could use it at gigs but no chance due to me being a dick when I was younger. Anyway, I thought I have 2 options, keep it as a ornament or have the big operation done which may not have been successful as not being an expensive guitar the adhesives used may not lend themselves easily or at all. Then I discovered the gripper!
Removed the rounded nut in seconds, I couldn't believe it. I have a massive grin on my face.
Now I can have the work done and start playing it out and most of all my late brother, who's guitar it was, can stop haunting me for being a total tit.

Thank you StewMac

A lifesaver. Just buy it!

I bought the 3/16 gripper to remove a stripped out truss rod nut on a great sounding Fender MIM Jazz Bass. The previous owner hacked the crap out of this thing with the wrong size hex wrench. Was stressed out for days waiting for the tool to arrive thinking it wouldn't work. When it arrived, it took me about 10 seconds to get the stripped nut out. A great tool !! Stew Mac to the rescue again.

SAVED 2 BASS GUITARS!!!

I bought this for my mexican 2003 Fender Precision that was done for! The truss rod was so stripped that i needed to hammer a screwdriver in just to make it playable. I only paid $350 for the bass, i wasn't paying $200 for a new neck. This $12.00 3/16" allen wrench saved my bass. Oddly while this was in shipment i picked up a Squier Classic-Vibe 60's jazz that had a slightly stripped rod. This saved this one as well. Thank you, StewMac! You literally saved me hundreds....and my fingers!

This wrench did EXACTLY what it promised. I was given a MIM Fender P-Bass and a previous owner had completely stripped out the truss rod. This wrench got the grip I needed to make the adjustment and now it plays like a dream. Thanks for this awesome product!

I had a rounded out truss rod nut, wasn't sure whether to go with the 3/16" or the 5mm for a Fender Mexican Jazz bass. the 5mm did the trick. 5 seconds later I'm twisting the new nut on and away we go.
