Anyone tried the Hosco phillips truss rod tool?

Recommended Posts

I have just see this:https://www.northwestguitars.co.uk/truss-rod-adjustment-tool-phillips-head/

It looks like it *might* be just the thing to adjust my JMJ mustang when it needs a tweak, but it depends on whether there's enough room around the pickguard cutout to get it in place.

I know that StewMac make a tool that will do the job, but ordering that one from the US is quite expensive in comparison.

Has anyone tried one of these Hosco ones?

Thanks for the link - the Stew Mac one is probably a better option for the JMJ, so its good to find a UK supplier.

I ordered the StewMac crank & it arrived this morning.

Its perfect for my JMJ mustang. I've just given the truss rod a little tweak and it was so much better than using a screw driver.  The two ended design makes it so easy to use at any angle of rotation of the truss rod nut. Well worth the money.

These are pretty good alternatives, in my experience (google paint can opener, available at places like B&Q for £1.50 or so, sometimes free

Did you order from Stewmac direct or from the eBay seller?

All my truss rods have Allen key adjustability. I am not familiar with these slot types.
