Allen wrench for Floyd Rose

I have a guitar that I lost the allen wrench for the floyd rose. I just bought a RG570 and . . . it's also missing the allen wrench. Does anyone know the size of allen wrench needed and a good place to buy one? I can pick one off the bay but it's five bucks with shipping. I imagine I could find one in a hardware store for less than a buck.

2.5 mm and 3 mm. Any music store or even hardware stores have them.

Re: Allen wrench for Floyd Rose

I got my allen wrench today. Strange, I went to Guitar Center. My goal was to pick up an allen wrench, a FR tremolo bar (screw in not bushings), some tung oil, some woodtite. GC had none of that. There was a guitar repair center three doors down. Got the allen wrench but the FR bar was too small. Bringing that back tomorrow. They told me to go to Ace for the woodtite and tung oil. They had the woodtite of course, they just don't sell it. I think that is the first time I have gone to GC and they haven't had anything of what I was looking for.

I bought a 7 string last year, and it didn't come with the hex wrench. I went to a local guitar shop and asked if they sold any. They said no, but we give them away! The guy pulled out a big box full of hex wrenches and told me to take what I wanted.

Can't beat that deal. I'm sure you can find a music store that has a wrench or two they wouldn't mind getting rid of.

It's amazing how something so small and of such little monetary value becomes so important when you don't have it.
