    What size Allen wrench do you need for the truss rod? It doesn't seem like I own any that are the right size

    Have you tried 4mm? Can’t say for sure but that’s the first one I’d try.

    I always thought the MIM std’s used 3/16 Allan wrench...don’t try it until it’s confirmed though!

    I tried that one, it seems slightly too big

    The one that came with mine is the ONLY one that fits. I have a set-up kit and a slew from basses and other kit packages and none of those fit. I keep it in the case at all times.

    Problem solved: I needed to buy a metric set. 4.5 is the size that fits

    On my MIM Precision the truss was metric and the saddles were imperial, it made no sense to me, I am just glad I had both sets.

    Yeah, that's the same with mine. I'm not complaining though, I'm just relieved I was able to figure out what size to use lol
