Oh FFS Taylor!

Post by Slowy »

Humid weather requires a trussrod tweak on my Taylor. Easy, says I; I've got plenty of hex style spanners.

Nope. It's a 1/4" nut with no room to get a socket in. Bloody Americans :roll:

So where do I get a 1/4" truss rod wrench that looks like this?

Beyond a critical point within a finite space, freedom diminishes as numbers increase. This is as true of humans as it is of gas molecules in a sealed flask. The human question is not how many can possibly survive within the system, but what kind of existence is possible for those who so survive.

Buy Now?
I'm sure mine shipped with one too but it has history before finding its daddy.

I've been in Auckland too long. My powers are weak.
