I need to adjust truss rod on Gibson SG faded and just realized it is not using allen keys but need hex wrench.
Where can I buy one?

Thank you! I searched L&M and couldn't find anything... Probably because I searched for Gibson Truss rod wrench.

Really appreciate your help

I knew that they were there and did the same search to no avail.
I had to find them through "guitar tools". Their search engine leaves a lot to be desired.

Their search engine sucks donkey balls. Always do a manual search.
for whatever reason, most of the time i get no results from those search engines either. not just web stores, but forums like this one as well. for me, it's often faster to just call them

L&M is exceptionally bad. In fact I think I even searched L&M for Gibson wrenches once and ended up getting a pair off ebay.

You can het em for a buck n change on ebay. If you pay attention even with the shipping itll be less that L n M.

Real gibson once are brass coloured and only like 3 “ long. The other end has a philips head for the truss rod screws. The longer silver coloured ones are a bit easier to use/ leverage, but i still like the bronze real ones ; fit nicely in case pockets etc.

Stew Mac in the USA has every truss rod wrench imaginable. I got one for my Gibsons and one for my Rickenbackers.

Got a set of tiny wrench set at Canadian Tire last year.
The problem is metric size does not fit on american guitars... :-(
Have now to file down an extra Allen key I have to match with a Taylor neck bolt.

But I am amazed reading this post : Allen keys are not wrench "sockets", are they ?
Even when I search for hex wrench or Allen keys on the net, I am showed Allen keys...

Add on : Anybody knows if Larrivée, moving to US, converted from metric to american ?

Thanks !
That was the general idea I had about a wrench compared to an Allen key.
Taylor has a similar tool but this "Popeye's pipe" looks better ! Poo ! Poo ! ;-)
