having a nightmare finding an allen key to fit the trust rod nut on my crafter fx 550. Anyone know

a) what size the key needs to be

or

b) where i can buy a key which will fit a crafter fx 550 trust rod.

Firstly, it's Truss rod, not trust. Secondly, you can buy american or metric allen wrench sets which would have the right size in it, if the truss is set up that way. It may be that it's the type that needs a socket to turn a nut. Just go to a hardware/auto parts store and explain to them the tool you need.

sorry for typo.

i have both a metric and non metric set of keys, which were the first ones i tried. It happily fell right between two keys on both sets. The nearest guitar shop is several miles away and i've no transport to get it there, but i could go in and ask if they know i guess. Was hoping to get the job done quicker from here if anyone knew it off the top of their head. its not a socket type though, i can see where the key would fit.

edit: been hammering google for crafter parts and keys etc, or even just the specifications which would list it, but nothing so far.

Its weird that you have both metric and non-metric and still cant get one to fit. Are you sure theres none missing or anything. If its any help, standard size is usually 1/4 inch or 5mm.

Email them. When I wanted to know the gear ratio of Seagull's stock tuners, they got back to me almost immediately. No idea about Crafter, but it's worth a shot.

advice from crafter incase anyone else finds this thread in the future.

"Please be advised that we began to use 4mm wrench 4 years ago. Before that, we had used 5mm wrench to adjust Crafter truss rod"
