Just like everything is unique on a Michael Dunn guitar, so is the truss rod.

Anyone know how to adjust it????

No hex wrench fits it, and can't fit a regular wrench there to twist it either, if that's how it's done on it.

    Hard to tell but looks like maybe it's a bit stripped?? Either way, I'd take to a luthier before messing around with it too much more.

    You might try to ask Shelley Park if you don't find any responses here. I think she might have worked with him for a while. At least they lived and built guitars in the same town. She probably has seen more than one of his guitars.

    I actually messaged him on Messenger, but not sure if he reads those. His old website is not up anymore so I don't have his contact.

    What’s the problem you are trying to solve?

    (Is the fingerboard very flat if you put a ruler on it? If it is, I would recommend leaving the truss rod torque as-is)

    Hard to tell from the picture but is it designed to use a right angle truss rod wrench that slips over the nut? I have a few guitars with those. It's no problem to adjust the truss rod if you want more/less relief. It shouldn't be used to change the action. Just mentioning because there are a few videos out there from well known Selmer style guitar luthiers that wildly misrepresent what the truss rod is for.

    About the truss rod nut itself: it might be metric rather than English--I bought some metric hex wrenches for just such situations. (I also have a Dunn guitar but have never needed to adjust the relief.)

    About contacting Michael: If he doesn't check his messages, maybe just post directly to his FB page, which I know he attends to because he posts there himself.
