Anyone know what size hex wrench fits the adjustment screws on the Seymour Duncan pickups on a Fly Mojo?

Looks like a T5? Hex? I could be totally wrong...

Do the Duncan’s have a hex screw?!

Mine have a flathead slot:

Are you referring to the DiMarzio pickups?

+1 to VJ’s question. Only the two generations of Dimarzios had hex pole pieces; and they’re imperial 3/32” (same as other hex Dimarzios). The Duncans had either one or two rows of fillister flathead screws, depending on era of production. Note that it is simple to swap screw types between pickups if desired; as the bobbins aren’t threaded.

Did you ever post your preferred height? I've got a Deluxe with Gen 2 Dimarzio and I'm trying to balance the bassy-ness of the neck pickup with the thinnesss of the bridge pickup. There is such a large tonal difference and volume difference that it is difficult to switch back and forth.
