Adjusting the Truss Rod - on a Fender Mustang

A friend of mine who owns a 70's Mustang was telling me he had to much neck bow and I said ok we can just adjust your truss rod, but his mustang does not have the typical opening at the headstock like I thought it would! What I did notice is you can see his truss rod at the other end next to the neck pickup along with two slits in the truss rod itself. Is there a special tool you need to adjust or will a flathead screwdriver work? Thanks!!!!!

Adjusting the Truss Rod

You need to remove the neck to adjust those bodyside truss rods. You risk damage to the body trying to do it with the neck on. The only tool you'll need is a phillips head screw driver...
