On electrics ii is usually under a cap on the headstock.

If this is the guitar you have then the truss rod is under that cap on the headstock. At least it looks like a cap to me in the picture.




Be careful when adjusting it because it can mess your guitar up.

Is there somewhere for a small allen key to fit? I'm not sure what kind of bridge you have, and I haven't worked much with FR and Edge/lo-pro bridges, so I can only speculate.

Look for somewhere where a very small allen wrench would fit; that's probably where you adjust the intonation for each saddle.

The truss rod is found under a cover on the headstock, but there should be almost no reason why you would do anything to it.

EDIT: Not all guitars have a truss rod. Classical guitars typically don't have a truss rod, and some very old steel strings don't have truss rods.

If you want to adjust the intonation then leave the truss rod alone, the intonation screws are the small hex screws in front of the bridge saddles. You won't "see" the truss rod because it's inside the neck, it can be adjusted using the bolt at the headstock under the trapezoid peice of plastic...the cunningly named "truss rod cover"
