Thumbs up What size of Allen wrenches for my RG 550?

Hi guys.. My RG550 will finally be here on Monday.. I'm wanting to set it up, but I can't remember the size of Allen wrenches I'll need to do so? Can someone fill me in on the trem wrench sizes and locking nut sizes and truss rod sizes?
Thanks so much

Re: What size of Allen wrenches for my RG 550?

4mm ->Bridge studs
3mm -> Locking nut pads, Saddle bolts
2.5mm -> Locking nut mounting screws
2mm -> Intonation screws
1.5mm -> Bridge stud set screw

Truss rod needs a 7mm hex driver.
