    Hello, I have a 1995 korean Squier 2 procesion bass and I want to make a truss rod adjustment. I have an allen wrench which I though fit but I tried turning it and doesnt always seem to get a firm grip on it. When I took it out the allen wrench had a bit of metal scraps on it. I am thinking that the allen wrench is off by a little bit. I do not want to keep going and end up stripping the head. Does anyone know what size would be needed for this kind of bass guitar?

    Take it to a dealer and have the truss rod adjusted before you end up stripping the head. Then... ask them what size they used and you'll be good to go the next time.
    Don't learn the hard way like I did... :rollno:

    No idea on size of that model, but id guess you are using a standard wrench and the bass is metric.

    I would watch a lot of Youtube videos before you try adjusting your truss rod yourself. I like watching this guy. Browse through his videos and you'll find him adjusting a lot of bass necks.

    I too have a MIK Precision, and I'm pretty sure it's metric.
