How to make a truss Rod Wrench for 7V Guitar

If you misplaced, lost or need a truss rod wrench, here is an easy way to make one.. Get a 7mm socket and a 12 or 16 penny nail. Drill a hole slightly smaller then the nail and hammer the nail all the way through until the point of the nail comes through the other side, (if nail bends during this process, simply straighten as many times as needed), grind off end of nail flush with socket, now you have a truss rod wrench for Jem 7V or other guitar that takes a 7mm truss wrench..

Good idea, but I'll just order one from Rich or Ibanez if I lose all of the 5 I have, at the moment....

This seems like an incredible amount of work to replace something that is extremely cheap and not difficult to get.

Not really, maybe about 30 minutes and I wanted one now, didn't want to drive 30+ miles to music store or order online. I just happened to have everything I needed, including a bench grinder.. It was just something that worked good for me and might help someone else.
