    I have an '08 Squier. Can't figure out what size hex wrench to use. Nothing I have Metric or Standard works.

    don't remember the size but what I do remember is that it was a bit smaller than I expected.

    5/32 seems to work. I have two of these and only one works. Go figure.

    Yes, please specify what area on the guitar you are trying to adjust and what model of squier? I know the newer bullets from last year came with the wrong size truss key.......

    for mine, 1.5mm for the saddle screws and 3/16 for the truss rod seems to work fine.
