    Why is an allen wrench so necessary, that it must be with the bass always?

    My thoughts exactly... and if it's so important, why don't you hang it off a keychain or keep it in your gigbag instead of screwing it onto the back of the headstock (ouch!)?

    Last minute setup and always having it around when you need it. It holds the bridge adjustments and the neck wrench.
  7. I think they attach with double-sided tape. I think...

    Or you could use a bit of those sheet magnets that have sticky stuff on one side. I use that to keep a set of my smaller kitchen knives on the inside of a cabinet door. That's assuming your allens are a magentically active metal, of course.

    It's screwed down in the pic. You can see the screws clearly :D IMHO, I still think it's a bad idea screwed down or not - if it's really that important, you wouldn't need a special holder for it on your bass. Plus, if you have regular gigs, it's good practice to have a well equipped gigbag/case (think toolkit, strings, cables, batteries...).

    Just my .02 :D
  10. That looks kinda like something a guitarist might have, if they had a locking nut that was loosened with an allen key.

    Only time I've ever seen one on a bass... All over Floyd loaded guitars though. Might want to check jemsite.com or something.
