I have an Ibanez Jem 7VP, Indonesian made 2019 Premium model. Is truss rod nut replacable on this model?

  • Any nut is replaceable… so long as the thread on the truss-rod isn't stripped. We would need more details on just precisely how someone managed to wreck this particular one & what the end result actually was. – Tetsujin Mar 29 '20 at 9:16
  • I mean double action truss rod nuts are not replacable and I don't know what kind of truss rod is used on this model (single or double action). The inner hexagonal shape of the nut is stripped, the inner shape is damaged. 4mm allen key turns within the nut. The nut doesn't turn – Jani Bolkvadze Mar 29 '20 at 9:39
  • You don't use Allen keys to turn nuts. Maybe the hex hole is in the end of the threaded trussrod. Try a slightly bigger (4.5mm) Allen key, but it sounds like the end of the 'bolt' is damaged. – Tim Mar 30 '20 at 9:31
  • drive.google.com/file/d/1u5rAfNdh9gNrhZYQcjf11JeVm8XJYdM1/… This is the damaged part. The key just turns within it. Probably 4.5mm would work but I prefer to replace it if possible. – Jani Bolkvadze Apr 12 '20 at 12:56
  • @Tim Could you please take a look? drive.google.com/file/d/1u5rAfNdh9gNrhZYQcjf11JeVm8XJYdM1/… – Jani Bolkvadze Sep 2 '20 at 21:29
