I bought this Tony Iommi SG a year ago. It is the Chinese version (made around 2012?). I have the old Korean version and I really like it. However, this new version I don't feel that much especially the neck profile (good looking though).

Previous owner used .008 string gauge. I just replaced it to .009 and tried to adjust truss rod. When I opened the cover it looks like something wrong. It is not for hex or allen wrench. Pictures are attached. Does it have missing nut or anyone knows how to adjust this type of truss rod?

Git it. I tried the wrench again as you suggested. I could feel it but it's tripped...barely moved.

Thank you both!

Ok, it's stripped. Simple-ish fix. Take a 6mm allen key, put it in a belt sander, and sand at an angle on each side. Be patient, then try it. You should be able to get enough "bite" to move the truss rod in the direction you need it to go.
