The Ibanez MTZ11 is a must have multi purpose guitar tool that should be in your gig bag!
It doesn’t matter whether you are an accomplished guitar luthier or just keen to set your guitar up properly having the correct tools for all the jobs that you may encounter is essential. That is why having a good multi purpose guitar tool is a must have in any guitarists gig bag.
Whether it is replacing a broken string, loosening a locking nut or adjusting the truss rod on your guitar there are jobs that you may need to do on your guitar that require the correct tools. For example many years ago I owned a Squier Strat with a Floyd Rose locking tremolo. Unfortunately when I purchased the guitar it didn’t come with any tools and I had no tools of my own. So when one of the strings broke I had no way of replacing it as I couldn’t undo the locking nut to fit the new string. But being a resourceful chap I wasn’t prepared to admit defeat. Therefore after a brief visit to my Dad’s tool kit I was armed with a whole range of Allen keys with which to set about the task of replacing the snapped string. However, to my intense frustration I found that none of the Allen keys fitted the locking nut and I was no further forward in replacing the broken string. Finally admitting defeat I paid a visit to my local guitar shop for assistance where the repair man whipped out his multi purpose guitar tool removed the locking nut and replaced the string in a matter of seconds. I have to say that I was truly impressed and from that day on I have always had in my gig bag a multi purpose guitar tool which could be called upon quickly to get me effortlessly out of trouble.
Therefore my advice is to get one of these multi purpose guitar tools for your gig bag.
