Truss Rod adjusting tool for Mexican Jazz Bass

Discussion in 'Hardware, Setup & Repair [BG]' started by Michael Case, Jul 24, 2003.

  1. I got a Mexican Jazz Bass from a friend of mine for free, I tried to adjust the truss rod and it seems like allen wrenchs don't fit. Is there a special tool to adjust this or could it just be stripped? My Pedullas come with the wrench to adjust the rod's it's been a while since I worked on a bass like this.
    Thanks in advance,

    Go to a guitar store and get a "T" handle 3/16 wrench made by Fender. They fit both MIA and MIM basses.
