Help need - pre refined fly, truss rod key
« on: October 03, 2018, 01:18:37 PM »
Hello all,

I am about to buy fly deluxe but it doesn't have a truss rod key.
Am I right in thinking an imperial Allen key of some sort will do the trick?

I believe it's a torx head, not an allen, but it is something you can get at a hardware store, and I wouldnt worry about the tool not being included.

It's a Torx wrench ... the one I got with my Deluxe is marked T27, but others here have reported that T25 worked better for them. No idea about that.

My fly is from 1994 and I never had to adjust the truss! Ha ha ha!

I think mine is an early one too.
I'm sure it's fine, I just like to have all the tools

MBB,

Within the last year or so, there was a guy selling some re-popped wrenches on Evilbay.   You might want to check there.  They looked nice.   I think the previous poster is correct and it is a T27.

It is neat to have the correct tools and such - even though you'll probably NEVER need to use it.    :)

Sadly my purchase collapsed and I'm back in the market for a pre refined fly.

The search continues

Well that stinks - sorry to here that.

There have been some great Fly's on the Evilbay over the last year or so - something will show up for you.

Good luck with your hunt - they are incredible guitars.
