were you able to get that repaired.
My repairman managed to make a screwdriver slot. The neck is adjustable now, but is currently maxed out.
On this note, both my brother and I own Pedulla basses (a Pentabuzz for me and an MVP5 for my brother). I had noted to him when he bought his that he had best make sure the truss rod tool was supplied with it (it was). It should be pointed out to prospective buyers of used Pedulla basses that they will not accept a normal truss rod tool for adjustment, as I will bet more than a few basses have been sold on the used market over the years without the proper adjustment tool in tow. I know replacements can still be bought from Michael but that might not always be the case.
What is the reason for Pedulla basses coming with a truss rod that needs this specialised tool, and are they available elsewhere? I am assuming that the truss rod is not fabricated by Michael with this head, so where does it come from and what type of truss rod is it? I recall reading a few years ago that the truss rod tool was actually designed for adjusting a harp, but could find no verification of this. Anyone who could add any insight would find a grateful reply from me!
Autoharp tuning wrench will work, that's what I use. I have heard it said that they don't fit exactly, that may be true, but I have been using mine for years.
