When it comes to electric and acoustic guitars, sometimes the little things help in very big ways.

With that in mind, equipment care company Music Nomad has launched, a new website that tackles a very particular but useful question: when setting up my guitar, what truss rod wrench size should I use?

To help with the answer, Guitar Nomad compiled a database of 75 electric, acoustic and bass guitar brands over a period of four months. 

Simply go to, type in a manufacturer or select one from the drop-down menu, and the site will direct you to the size and wrench type for your needs.

“As leaders with our growing community, no niche is too small if it makes equipment care easier,” said Music Nomad president Rand Rognlien.
