Is it a bolt on neck?  Could be on the neck heel...  Some guitars require neck removal to adjust...

I would have done the same thing. Which is aggravating, because usually you also have to loosen a string or two to get a straight shot at those little screws hiding under there!

Good info to know - always check the sound hole first, even if there's a "truss rod cover".

I think they do that to maintain the "traditional" Gibson/Epiphone look.
