Truss rod wrench


Recommended Posts


Just brought a new SG home (see introduction thread). I was going to set it up yesterday and as I was going to adjust the truss rod I noticed that the included wrench (Gibson multi tool) didn't fit. I think it fits the nut but the pocket around the nut may be too small, or the walls of the wrench too thick. 

Have anyone else had the same experience? What was the solution? Get a wrench with thinner walls?

I know, still, just force it into the pocket, there's no other way around. It's not an uncommon issue.

Thanks! Force was applied and it worked. The nut was covered in clear lacquer that wasn't visible until it came off. Tightening the rod straightened the neck and helped fix the remaining intonation issues. This guitar is amazing!
