I've been working on my current project for ages now, http://www.musicradar.com/forum/show...=107038&page=1
it's been hard to find the time last few months. I'm nearing the end though all the refinishing is done, new tuners and electrics installed only 2 jobs left, make a new control cavity cover and enjoy the setup then play the shit out of it.
The problem is I finished the electrics at stupid o'clock on Saturday night and suddenly realised that I'd forgotten to order a truss rod tool. The one I got with my us prs was too big. I had a quick look online and saw a few sites where people said their gibson tool worked fine on a se. I didn't bother checking properly logged onto wd music and my package was here when I got home today. Well it doesn't bloody fit does it? It was late, I was wrecked and completely forgot that the us prs tool and the gibson wrench are the same size. I suppose to look on the brightside at least I have a spare and the end of the new one is also a screwdriver
So does anyone know what size I have to get for an se? The guitar sounds awesome but the necks a fraction too straight and I've had to raise the action a little to compensate.
I promise full completed project thread soon with quality pics once I make the new cavity cover this weekend. Also an exclusive sneak preview photo sent to the first person that can help me out with the size.
Afraid I don't know Adam, but is it a hex tool? If so, a set of hex tools (metric and imperial) aren't expensive from B&Q or similar. Bound to be one that fits. If it is a nut over a rod, I'm stumped. But hope you get sorted. Looking forward to the pics!
Afraid not dude it's a nut over the rod the same as a US prs or Gibson. I'm just not 100% sure what size I need. Prs themselves sell them from their site but won't ship internationally. I've seen a few on eBay but was hoping someone with an se could tell me which one I needed so I can get the right size. It's only slightly smaller than the US one which is rather irritating.
Oh and pics as soon as I make a new control cavity cover (hopefully tomorrow) it looks a bit untidy without it. Plus it was buzzing a little so the current one I made out of cardboard backed with copper tape to shield the pots until I make the permanent one :-)
