GTAW4 and GTAW5 sound hole wrenches from CruzTOOLS allow easy acoustic guitar neck adjustment – and the two sizes fit most makes and models.
CruzTOOLS, a manufacturer of tools for musicians, has announced their first product aimed exclusively at acoustic guitars.
Many acoustic guitars manufacturers locate the truss rod nut inside the body at the neck’s base. Adjustment is therefore necessary through the sound hole, sometimes through a brace to an unseen nut, making normal hex wrenches impractical. To address this application, CruzTOOLS developed its GrooveTech Soundhole Wrenches. The hex blade was extended for improved access, and a ball-end tip eases fit into the truss rod nut. Finally, a screwdriver-type handle provides confident adjustment and avoidance of damage to the finish. The blade and tip are made to precision tolerances using a professional-grade material.
Two sizes are available – 4mm and 5mm – to address most makes and models of acoustic guitars. GrooveTech Soundhole Wrenches are available in the UK now priced £11.50, making them an affordable addition to the toolbox of any acoustic guitar player.
‘Our product development has been historically directed at electric guitars and basses,’ says Dan Parks, president of CruzTOOLS. ‘So we felt it was time to address unique problems acoustic players face. Truss rods, which are often the only adjustment on an acoustic guitar, weren’t easily handled by standard hex wrenches. We’re therefore really happy to introduce these time-saving tools.’
