So I bought a guitar recently that needs a bit of work done, although it needed more than what I thought. The neck was up bowed/warped, bent forwards. So I went to take a look at the truss rod to find out it was just a screw with a bolt on it that looked like the top of a truss rod... what can I do to fix this? How can I check if there's even a truss rod in the neck?
If there's even a truss rod clover to remove in the first place, then there has to be a truss rod there. Otherwise it wouldn't be called a truss rod cover.

What kind of tool do you need to adjust the truss rod? A hex allen wrench is by far the most common.
