Strange truss rod on 1990 Orville LPC-75

Hi,

I just got a white 1990 Orville LPC-75 made in Terada. When I took a look under the truss rod cover I was surprised not to find a Gibson type adjustment nut but what looks like more like a Fender type allen wrench shaped hole on the end of the rod. The top of the rod is also quite deep in the cavity (about 1,5 cm).

What do you think? Is this normal for this type guitar? Has the truss rod been replaced or is something missing from it?

Here are some pictures:

Hi there, I know this is a very old thread, but... Did you ever get an answer to your question? I have the same issue with a 1991 Orville Custom ("K" serial). The truss rod is a normal "allen wrench" type.

Yes, it's perfectly normal. Check this thread: http://www.mylespaul.com/forums/other-l ... ost3480708
