Just buy yourself 2 sets of Allen Wrenches, 1 metric and 1 imperial. They have 1000 + 1 uses around the home and workshop and they'll only cost you a few bucks. You can get them from any hardware store.

Thank you Crusty, have allen wrenches, yes. But, the neck adjustment takes a side "socket"- type wrench similar to Les Paul adjustment wrench. I was wondering if Line 6 had extras available or a specific size to get.

Gee, I have not had to adjust the neck on my 700. The 600 adjuster is exposed and that is just an Allen type. I have not take the cover off the 700 to peek at the adjuster. Perhaps I should. The guitars only come with Allen wrenches and that's why I presumed the 700 would have the same type of truss rod adjuster.
Line 6 don't have anything listed in their parts store. I have never had a problem with truss rod adjusters as I have a collection of tools from guitars past. Including small socket wrenches.
The curiosity is going to get to me now and I'll have to take a look at the neck adjuster on the 700.
I have a socket set with 14" drive and T wrench that I use for guitars that have a hex nut type adjuster at the head.

Please check out the following knowledge base document for the specifications you are looking for:

The Line 6 documentation is incorrect or there are undocumented variations in the models. My Variax 700 electric requires a 7mm hex socket, as the truss rod has a hex nut (male) and not a hex inset (female) - that is, adjust as you would for a Gibson truss of this type.
You can get these wrenches from online guitar shops - I needed to get a 'proper' wrench as there is not enough room to fit the more general types of 7mm hex wrench or ring spanner you might have.
