Hi im having a problem adjusting the truss rod on my S2170 prestige. When I bought the guitar 4 tools came with it. None of the wrenches fit the truss rod end so i can't adjust it. What should I do? which tool is used to adjust it?

thanks

Ibanez S2170 Purple Chameleon finish
Vintage SG
Roland Microcube
Digitech overdrive
Digitech HEAVY METAL
Dunlop Crybaby

I'm sorry, but I just have to say it: Use one that fits.

Edit: Of allen keys aka Allen Wrenches aka Hex keys. That is like what 99% of all truss rods use.

it`s not a allen key it`s the socket wrench, this is what you should have in the ibanez tool kit.



the stud post wrench is only for original edges, the same allen key is used for the lock down pads and studs otherwise. and the stud lock wrench is for the lo pro bridge.

What a helpful picture o_O
It was hard trying to find out what sizes I needed for my guitar. I ended up just buying a whole set, which wasn't really that bad figuring I could use it on everything, but yeah... helpful nevertheless.
