Hi!

I have problem with truss rod end in my RG1527. It rounded off after many years despite using original Ibanez tool.
Is it possible to replace just this end of truss rod? If yes - is it easy to do?

I think the truss rod looks quite fine... what´s your problem?
Maybe you need to push up the tool a little more to "grab" the rod?
Usually, there is no need to adjust the truss rod if you don´t change the string gauge, so maybe there may be another (neck) issue...?

Prestige truss rod nuts are 7mm, it seems it was damaged from improper tools/use? When you use the Ibanez tool there is a really snug/deep fit and you would never damage a nut like that.

Agree with the other posters, that nut is not rounded, just the very top edge. A properly fitting tool will still work fine.
