Replacing truss rod?

Did a search, couldn't find anything on this. I stripped my truss rod's hole some. I thought I had the right sized allen wrench. I was wrong. It's not bad, it will still turn, but I'm worried about later on. How hard / expensive is it to get a truss rod replaced? Or can you just replace the nut(??) on the top, like on the UV?

You can just replace the nut that you stripped, but I don't know where you'd get it besides trying Rich.

Well Ibanez's (that just don't look right, do it?) parts catalog doesn't have that part listed seperately for the UV OR my JS700. Anyone have some advice? Would my local Ibanez dealer have more detailed info???

Well I'm looking again and feeling too lazy to lug my axe up to the local shop. Anyone have an inside line on the nut atop my truss rod for the JS700?
