Title: Help need - pre refined fly, truss rod key
Post by: meltedbuzzbox 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.

Thanks guys much appreciated.
I've bit the bullet and bought the guitar.
More questions to follow I am sure

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.
