It looks really beautiful. That was nice of the mod to attach the picture for you.

You won't have to make any adjustments to your guitar for sometime, there are not many tools needed to do a set-up on a Rickenbacker. If you use the same gauge strings, .10- only fine adjustments are ever required. The only tools that you will need is a Rickenbacker nut driver, it is used to turn the nuts on the truss rod, the small allen keys that comes with the guitar are the others.

Maybe some feeler gauges will come in handy. Never attempt to make a truss rod adjustment without the Rickenbacker nut driver, others will not fit well, if at all and damage your guitar.

if you keep your guitar in it's case when not playing it, it protects it from sudden temperature change, and as you know never leave it in a hot spot or in a car.

Is your guitar brand new a few years old?

Yes I thought it might be brand new. As I live in Australia I too found it a bit difficult to get a truss rod nut driver. To get to the short of the long of it, I had to buy one from ebay.
It was one of the only ways to get one to Australia.

If you're an ebay member you will have no trouble getting one. You could also try Pick of the Ricks, they most likely will post to you, they also stock the truss nut driver.

I just did a check for you! Pick of the Ricks has it listed at $18.50 + postage USD
Ebay the cheapest I could find was over $30.00 + postage USD.

Pick of the Ricks has a good price on this item, they are easy to deal with, I have dealt with them in the past, they use paypal and other methods of payment.

I'm sure you will be able to get one.
