RG1XXV truss nut stripped or not?
Hi all! New to the site and to Ibanez guitars. Recently snatched a crispy RG1XXV in that beautiful pink color. I absolutely love love love the guitar. It is simply amazing. However, recently it was buzzing quite a bit and when I checked the relief sure enough there was none. So I set about adjusting the neck. Could not get a clear answer on what hex size it takes, but 4mm was too small and 5 was too big. Looking into the nut to me the hole looked pretty round, not too hex shaped. However when I used a 4.5 hex key that sure enough got her to turn and I was able to loosen the rod.
The relief is perfect now, but here's what I'm wondering. Should I set about changing out the truss rod nut at this point, or do you think I will be fine using the 4.5mm hex key for all future adjustments?
Thanks for any advice!
**Edit: Nevermind, I'm an idiot. Upon closer inspection with a better flashlight the hex nut is fine (it has a rounded top, basically a bowl to help guide you in I guess) and what I thought was a 4.5mm hex key is actually a 4 (the labeling of my set is skewed). If anyone was wondering the truss nut on the RG1XXV takes a 4mm key. Man do I love this guitar!!
