Just wanted to add to this topic since I bet it comes up periodically - you can find spare allen keys at any hardware store.

Yes, but.....

As with many things in our "global economy", there are Metric sizes and Imperial (English) sizes.

The OP is over five years old, but considering it's about a Floyd Rose-equipped guitar, all the keys needed for the vibrato are metric. Don't know about the Kramer truss-rod nuts though.

Truss rod nut should be just like Epiphone's 4mm
