DragonFly/MaxxFly truss rod tool

Post by jb63 »

Apparently, I don't have a tool that fits.
Does anybody regularly adjust their USA MaxxFly necks and can point me towards a wrench that will do the trick?
I can't believe my searching was in vain, but we can post it here to help whomever is next!

Thanks!

I'm pretty sure it's a 3/16" allen wrench. Most of my other brands use metric, but these are odd.

We’ll this is the thing.
The short side is longer than in the picture but you can make it work.

It really bothers me that I have to adjust this twice a year and that led me to Parkers in the first place. But I love this wooden neck and rosewood fretboard. It plays like nothing else.

In fairness to the guitar, it all comes down to where you live or travel - None of my Flys make it through the seasons (or the 30+ degree temperature swings they bring) where I live in the midwest without requiring a turn of the piano wire. Compare that to when I lived in a consistently warm and arid region of California and took the relative stability of all my “normal” guitars with one piece necks for granted (often only adjusting the truss when switching to a new string gauge).
