Its veeeery small I can tell you. Not sure the exact size, but I couldn't find it at any hardware place I went to (they didn't have it small enough), but luckily my brother who was visiting had one in his tool box. So I don't really know what to tell you I guess except good luck tongue.gif

Maybe you can get one from fender somehow? But also, I would suggest checking guitar center or similar places, they should have one there. Thats what I would have done if I hadn't gotten one from my brother.

Saddle Height Adjustment Wrench pn# 0018531000 (.050 in. Hex)

Did a quick search and came up with this part#. Looks like the actual instrument wrench is hard to find but a good hex pack might have it. smile.gif

It is best to check it with Fender authorized dealer, because it is not something you can get in regular tool sets. You risk damaging the saddle screws.

Yeah...I didn't have one in my toolbox, and the local hardware store didn't carry one as well! I am going to see if my local guitar shop sells them.

This may be completely useless information in your case, but my Fender came with a little bag of stuff (sometimes refered to as case candy it when buying) and while looking through it, the spring bag that it came with, has the allen key needed for adjusting the string height. No idea why Fender decided to put it in there.

But yeah, not sure if that helped or not!

Ajmurrell is right, all Fender guitars come with this allen key, because it is a non-standardized size.
