pointless allan key/wrench came with guitar

has this happened to you?

you have baught a new guitar, and it has came with 6 or 7 allan keys and of which, all but 1 is pretty much useless....

heres mine,

my jem555 came with 8!

1 opens the nut, and releases the strings, adjusts the bridge height
1 fits the truss rod
1 for moving the saddles for intonation

that leaves 5 which do nothin, theres even one thats too big for the truss rod and come to think about it too big for anything! maybe i can use it as a spare trem arm, i dunno...

Weird, my guess is the seller replaced the standard tool kit with a generic Wal-Mart set or something.
