bullet truss nut hex

  1. I have some trouble with a rusty bullet truss nut on a Fender j 1978
    My problem is I don’t have the hex in the right size?
    I think 3.5 mm hex will fit, but stew Mac use size like 1/8. 3/32…so on
    Do you know what US size it should be?
    And maybe where I can bye a long T-handel hex I the right size to fit Fender bullet nut, on the Net

    Thanks for your understanding

  3. I was so Lucy, to find the right hex in a local special tool store; I have now adjust the neck
    It had a huge front bow, like a banana, but its straight now.
    The action is low, and the bass is great to play

    Yes, the 1/8 hex fits perfectly. Thanks
