WALL TOWNSHIP, NJ – HexHider developer SmallStage LLC and Floyd Rose tremolo manufacturer AP International have teamed up with Schecter Guitars to provide their magnetic allen wrench with new Floyd Rose-equipped Schecter instruments. This unique collaboration makes Schecter the first manufacturer to offer the HexHider on their guitars, opening up a new frontier for the aftermarket product.
The patented HexHider design uses a powerful Neodymium magnet to hold the tool in place when in use and to store the wrench by magnetically gripping onto any metal tuning machine on the back of the headstock without permanent installation. The 3mm wrench works to unlock the nut for easier fine tuner resets, loosen the string lock screws at the bridge for quicker string changes, and make bridge post height adjustments on all authentic Floyd Rose Tremolos as well as many licensed versions.
“The HexHider is such a great addition to our guitars with Floyd Rose bridges because they make owning a Floyd simple,” said Schecter Guitars president Michael Ciravolo. “We are always looking for innovative ways to help musicians with their music making.”
SmallStage LLC CEO Steve Skillings responded: “I am very humbled and excited that a HexHider® magnetic hex tool will be included with select Schecter guitars. Working with their team is an amazing feeling.”
Select guitars have already begun shipping with accompanying HexHiders beginning in June 2021 and will be available at a wide variety of retailers, both in-store and online.
