Hi, Can you tell me something about my new Elan. I've always wanted an Alembic, and I finally have one.

Is there a tool set for adusting the truss rod available? If there is, how much, and where can I buy it?

Thanks,
Roy

Welcome Roy,

It's a simple 1/4" wrench. You probably have one in your tool kit. Available at your local hardware store, or here in the Alembic Store too. A well thought procedure for neck adjustment is located somehwere in the FAQ's.

Welcome Roy- I saw the pictures on talkbass- beautiful Elan.

Before you start working those truss rods, I'd suggest having a read of Joey's setup post in the FAQ section. The dual truss rods, bridge design and adjustable nut are awesome in terms of getting the action right where you want it, but it can be overwhelming at first.

Enjoy~
