  1. My brother has kindly lent me, on a long term basis, his MIM Fender Jazz. He rarely plays it (he's mostly a guitarist) and knows I will give it a good home.

    It sorely needs a set-up. Probably new strings, too, but that's another matter. I've got my feeler gauges, Phillips & flat drivers, ruler, and capo, but I'm stumped on the Allen wrench I need to adjust the bridge, and the one for the truss rod. What sizes are they? None of mine fit.


    Edit: Mods, this ought to be in Hardware, Setup & Repair.... Sorry.
  2. Anybody?? Seems like a simple question. My bro doesn't have the factory wrenches, and the on-line manual is confusing to me. 3/32"? .050? Both? A little help here? I'm not really stupid, I'm just looking for the clue.

    Yeah, I know, this should be in Hardware, Setup & Repair. Mods?

    If imperial sizes dont work, try metric.

    I believe the truss rod is 3/16" and the saddles are 1/16" or 1.5mm.
