Talking First Post: JS1000 Questions!

Hey Guys,
1st post here, I've been lurking for a while but haven't owned an Ibanez in years.
I just picked up a JS1000BP yesterday!
Serial # begins with F98, so I am guessing it is a 1998?

Years ago, I had a 542R and absolutely loved it! It looked like a race car and played like a dream! I ended up giving it to a good friend that was really down in the dumps and needed a positive outlet. Been missing it ever since!

Anyway, I got the guitar last night and will use it at practice today!
It did not come with any wrenches.

I need a truss rod wrench, but would like to know what you guys use to adjust the truss rod?
The metal bar above the nut gets in the way of all of the allen wrenches I have.

Anyway.....
Glad to be here and any help would be greatly appreciated!
I'm already gassing for a JS2400 since I've been using a PRS CE24 for a long time, but will have to wait until they come out with a red one!

It's a 5mm Allen but you have to cut or grind it down to 1/2" to fit under the string retainer.

Thanks Rich!
I had thought about cutting one down, but wasn't sure if that would work.

So...1/2" long so that it fits between the nut and the retainer bar?

Right on, thanks! Just seemed too easy!
Most companies have some stupid code so that only they know, if they keep track at all......
