Truss Rod Tool for a Peavey Foundation S

Anyone have a good source? Or a spare? I just can't quite seem to fit a socket in there, and the neck waaaaay needs adjustment. No local shop around to do a real setup, and I can never remember to take it when I go to the next town over.

Any recommendations?

I'd contact Peavey! I understand that they have a pretty good customer service department, and heck, they're only about 60 miles from you...

Cheers, Tim

If it's the same as the regular 80s era Foundation, it's a 5/16" hex acorn nut. The access hole is too narrow for a normal socket bit, but those REALLY cheap stamped metal (hollow) hex key sets from Walmart and other such stores would work. The also have extra long and narrow socket sets at home depot that are little more thin-walled - that's what I used on my Foundation.

FWIW, the Peavey tool IS a version of the cheap stamped metal hex key.

I ordered mine from Peavey. In fact since I just adjusted the truss rod of my foundation, I have it right beside me here. The item number is 75031006 and they charged me $5.00 for it.

If it's a 5/16" nut, that's the same as a Gibson. It's a thinwall socket that looks similar to this. If you can't find one at a local music store, look for a 5/16" thinwall nut driver at a hardware store or home center.
