key, although i have heard many an american calling it a wrench...i guess those guys just love that word
#7
Americans and "wrenches" It's a SPANNER, lol. And as for monkey wrenches, it's an ADJUSTABLE SPANNER! So therefore... ALLEN SPANNER!

Nah, key.
These go to eleven...

I call it a wrench...big deal. This guy at GC called it a hex key, that was a new one for me.
#12
you know, it actually morphs into a different tool if you call it the wrong name...


but I think madpickin is right...

I'll have to put the Classic T models on my to-try list. Shame the finish options there are Anachronism Gold, Nuclear Waste and Aged Clown, because in principle the plaintop is right up my alley.

Presumably because the CCF (Combined Corksniffing Forces) of MLP and Gibson forums would rise up against them, plunging the land into war.

You know what, personally i rather dont care what they call it, as long as it has the word Allen or Hex in them, they're pretty self-explainatory. Hell, even Ibanez call them Allen wrench...

well then again that instruction sheet was for the crappier trems so you wouldnt want to trust that sheet for anything either
#19
So what if the manual means nothing, Ibanez Japan call them wrench, korean call then allen wrench, stewmac calls them hex key.

Here's from wikipedia http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Allen_key ...

Like i said, whatever the hell its called it dont matter, just that you'll get the general idea if you say 'Allen' or 'Hex' ...

i would say that in the world of tools, allen keys are more closely related to screw drivers. The allen key equivalent to a wrench would be a socket wrench.

Allen wrench...thats how most(if not all) Americans say it at least.
