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.

Totally Saved My Neck

By

Verified Buyer


I foolishly ordered a neck online that was a deal way too good to be real. Sure enough the truss rod nut was tightened all the way down, with a hump in the neck and the nut stripped. These recue wrenches made it possible to adjust the neck to usable and playable condition again, currently installed on a Tele parts-caster. Very happy to have purchased these.

Works Really Well

By

Saved my Mexican Jazzmaster. Plus, it is a sturdy and well made tool. If you think you need one, but are afraid that it will crush you if it fails, it won't. You can save your neck. Everything will be okay.

I was affraid the nut was too stripped

By

Verified Buyer


I had a stripped truss rod nut on a J bass that was almost completely rounded from the previous owner. I was affraid it was even too stripped for this thing, but with a light tap from a small hammer, it gripped onto the nut and I could finally remove that little sucker.

Professional Quality Luthier Tools

These gripper truss rod wrenches are extremely well made. As a luthier shop, we rely on vendors like StewMac for the specialty tools we can rely on to get optimal results.

I doubted, I was wrong

By

Verified Buyer


I really really rounded my truss rod nut badly, trying to get them out with creative attempts that all failed. I thought I messed up to get them out with the gripper wrenches because they were round AF (just want to emphasize it :D). Well, I got the gripper, put it in, applied some kind of pressure and the nut INSTANTLY loosened and I could extract it. I am impressed, these things just work properly and solve the headache of removing freaking truss rod nuts!

Yes!

I was so worried that I would never be able to adjust the truss rod of my beloved old guitar because it was stripped. An Internet search came up with this tool, I bought it, and it worked like a charm. May guitar and this ranch are now good buddies.

Works but why aren't the sizes labelled

By

Verified Buyer


I bought a few of these because I work on different guitars. They do the job. But why in the world didn't Stewmac label the size on the handle? It is a simple thing to do and would make it easy to grab the size I know I need for the guitar in hand.
