If you feel like spending a little bit of money....http://www.stewmac.com/shop/Tools/Special_tools_for:_Truss_rods/Truss_Rod_Rescue_Kit.html

But otherwise I would guess you want to remove the fretboard, take out the truss rod, and then put the whole thing back together again.

I would wait to do it though, someone around here might have a better way to do it.

EDIT: How did you strip it? That must have take a lot of effort.

i striped i think bc i used a metric instead of a standard allen, one fits a little tighter i guess, that is wut someone told me, idk i was doin something i wasn't positivly sure on how to adjust it and tried it, so i guess u learn from mistakes

It may, but when you put the new one on you can just correct whatever wrong happened. Thats the beauty of a truss rod.

erm, if its that screwed it might need drilling, where a small drill bit is used to drill the core of the bolt out, this would have to be done by a pro or it could seriously go tits up, before you resort to this, try and get it out by all means neccisarry, without damaging anything else, be careful and take your time

try and get a steel replacement if you can... aluminium sounds like its too soft
