    Default Mustang whammy

    I have a Japanese mustang with a big silver wammy bar, looks like a lipstick pickup. The thing needs adjusting though so it can bend down as well as up, and I CAN'T find an alan key to fit it, the holes are TINY and nothing I've tried works. Does anyone know what key I need - and where I can get one from, in the UK preferably.

    Cheers!

    Bill.

    I like Sears Craftsmans tools, I find them durable and I like their warranty, if you have a problem with one you go back, complain and get a new one. They have Allen wrenches in nice sets that come in either regular or, (what I recommend) with a ball end. The ball ends are great 'cause you can have the wrench at an angle for tougher spots.

    You need a .050" allen key and you have to fish around in the holes to find the adjustment points.

    Finally, the answer!
    Some contend that rock 'n roll is bad for the body & bad for the soul
    Bad for the heart, bad for the mind, bad for the deaf & bad for the blind.
    It makes some men crazy and they talk like fools.
    Makes some men crazy and they start to drool.

    Well maybe. As long as the Japanese Mustangs are the same as the vintage California made Mustangs.
    In the U.K.; they use Metric not Imperial measure so it may not be the easiest tool to get.
