Quick question for the knowledgeable:

I love that multi tool that comes in the case candy when you get a new Gibson, I mean most of the guitars I've bought over the years were lucky to have an Allen wrench to adjust saddles?

I've used a few of the tools but what is this one below used for? No big deal, just curious.

Thanks in advance, much appreciated!

I think thats for the action:

- Side A:
- 5/16" Truss Rod Socket
- 4mm Slotted Screwdriver
- 1/8" Hex Key
- 1/16" Hex Key
- 0.05" Hex Key
- Lever with laser engraved reference marks (3/64" and 5/64") for adjusting action at the 12th fret

- Side B:

- 1.5mm Hex Key
- 2mm Hex Key
- 2.5mm Hex Key
- 3mm Hex Key
- #1 Phillips Screwdriver
- #2 Phillips Screwdriver

My Historics came with the truss rod wrench with the handle being a small phillip screwdriver.... that's a multi-tool. Though the pickups need a flat blade screwdriver to adjust height and pole pieces.

I got two of those fancy multi-tools with my later Gibsons.... both were Juniors.

99% sure the 3 historics I have didn't come with the truss rod wrench. The used '96 standard did though lol.

(also I am 100% here for the jokes that were made after my post)

My 2004 R7,....2012 R9,.... and my 2014 R8 all had the TR wrench..... My CC#28 did not. My Custom Shop 2011 Les Paul Custom did not either.

Though i have so many it doesn't really matter anymore..... and you will never get a screwdriver big enough for the stop bar screws.

At least you got one. I was told by Sweetwater when I got my '17 that Gibson doesn't include them. Found out SW did me dirty and Gibson did include them.
