Allen key.

Recommended Posts

Can anyone recommend a longer allen key?. The keys i have dont reach the truss rod without hitting the fretboard design on this GB.

Cheers.

Can you not turn the allen key around so that you're using the long end in the rod?

 

Edit: Ah no you can't...I see the problem now.....

 

 

Edit2: Although if you had a ball ended allen key (they allow approach from an angle) then that would fix it

How much clearance do you need?

What is the overhang distance of the fretboard? What is the length of the access slot? What is the AF size of the allen key required?

When I was getting my fretless tended at Overwater, Chris got a standard allen key and ground about half of the short end off as it would have been too long to fit into the slot.  You might try that.
