    Got this dandy Gibson tool included with a new SG. It's got screwdrivers, hex wrenches, a truss rod wrench, and peculiar L shaped bit that I have no clue as to what it's for. Can anyone tell me what it is used for?

    It's for tapping the loose frets back in. But it's missing a bottle opener.

    I just bought a 2017 (used) SG, and it came with a similar red tool.
    Mine does not have the Gibson logo.
    Cool!

    Could it be for tapping a nut out?

    I'm wondering if the L shaped doodad is to keep the spring on a humbucker during installation?
