So I have a Fender Squire Bullet and I need to adjust the truss rod but the head or part where I need to put the wrench to adjust it is stripped.... Any ideas on what I could do?

You need a new amp.


dude, just shut the **** up. this bullshit needs to be against the rules.


TS, your ****ed.


either find a way to adjust it with pliers or something or start peeling your fretboard up to replace it.

Umm. You do not need a new amp. Try using a larger wrench first. If that doesn;t work, if you can get some needle nose pliers in there, that could work. If all else fails, take it to someone who fixes guitars. The money could be worth it considering you could break your guitar's neck.

use a torx bit and gently tap it in there
ESP Eclipse with blackouts (Snow White)
Taylor 814ce (tabacco sunburst)
Dean Dime o Flage
Spider valve mkii
Fender Super Reverb
Peavey Vypyr 15

either use a torx bit or an imperial sized bit, that should give you enough bite.
Gear:
PRS Tremonti SE with PRS USA Tremonti pickups
2001 Ibanez RG470
Peavey Bandit 112
Fender Superchamp XD
USA Jackson SL1

yeah, they have wrenches for stripped nuts, like the stewmac one.

i know it's a cheap guitar, so i dont suggest you spend too much on a wrench,
or on someone to turn it for you, BUT
i really advise against trying too many bits the wrong size, as that can strip the
rod worse.

Alternatively....

with the bridge fixed, when you fret the first fret on the low E
and the last fret Low E, (where the neck and body meet)

is there any gap at the middle frets? the 7-9th?

is the string laying on the fret wire there?
is the string more than a credit cards thickness up from the fret wire there?

answer these questions. if the relief is already really close to spot on,
you can adjust the neck by changing slightly string gauge, and swapping one string at a time.

You can get a single wrench for $10 or a whole set for $55. It might not be a bad tool to have for the future if you're a guitar collector.

i have so many tools now.

it's not a bad price, tho stewmac refuses to help a playa out on shipping costs.
so usually their wrenches end up costing double what's listed.

:/

I'd just sell it on CList or something and buy a new guitar. It IS a Squire Bullet - you can find another used one for what? $50?

No one ever helps a playa out anymore.

It's whack.
