Truss rod wrench

I can't find anywhere, what size wrench a Jem takes? I have looked everywhere, the Ibanez site doesn't even have a contact email. Anyways, I know I can get an answer here. I dont know that it matters but my jem is from 1990. I need a truss rod wrench and im not sure what size it is out of these 2.

1/4" or 9/32"

The fact that I answered you 3 times wasn't enough?

Re: Truss rod wrench

Oh god not this again... Rich you told me 7mm... I have found several online stores that sell truss rods... non of which are measured in mm... so I decided to do the math and find out what it is in inches (which is what all the sites advertise them in) and it turned out that 7mm is damn close to both available options which are 9/32" and 1/4". I just wanna know what truss rod wrench is correct size for my jem, in inches. Yous see... because both 9/32" and 1/4" can be rounded to 7mm... I have told you that several times Rich, do you understand now why "7mm" doesn't help me? thanks

I had to make the "pattern" for the early volume knob placement and forward to (said person)

Truss wrenches are much easier. Do you want one too....just to hold you off??????
