Truss Rod Wrench for LTD Vintage 214 Fretless

    Recently bought a LTD vintage 214 Fretless. It did not come with a truss rod wrench. I have a full set of ball end Allen wrenches (or hex keys) Metric and SAE and none of them work. The short end of the wrenches aren't long enough to reach the nut, and the long end of the wrench doesn't follow the contour of the pocket where the truss rod nut is, and can't make contact with the nut.

    Does anyone know what size wrench is needed and where I can find one?

    Turns out it's a 4mm wrench.
    I contacted ESP off their website and their Warranty dept mailed me a tool kit at no charge containing the 3 different wrenches needed to make any adjustments to the truss rod and bridge. Thanks to Tim at ESP for the great customer support!
