These metal string trees screw into a Fender or similar peghead to maintain the string angle at the nut. Each holds down two strings.
Same style string retainers that were used on a post '57 Strat®, Tele® and similar instruments.
Set of 2 includes: 2 string retainers with mounting screws, and spacers (short and tall). Use the short spacer for the E & B strings (many early instruments only used one string retainer for the E and B strings).
Pilot holes required:
Installing delicate screws such as these into hard maple requires great care and accuracy. We highly recommend using a 5/64" bit for the pilot hole before installing these screws. Lubricate the screw threads with cutting lubricant (also wax or a bar of soap) to reduce friction and help them thread properly.
