Roller String Retainers for Guitar, Set of 2

About This Item

Patented rollers help eliminate tuning problems and reduce string breakage.

Mounting screws included.

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.

Nice quality roller string tree

(Customer's Reviews)

The placement is the only concern. The body of the roller is so fat that it nearly touches the string on each side. Be sure to have clearance on each side of the roller frame before tightning the screw. I am satisfied...


too tall

(Customer's Reviews)

These were way too tall on my strat and barley put any tension on strings...kinda look out of place as well...almost ugly...I was excited about them but its more of a novelty thing, then truly useful...i doubt my strings were getting hung up on my metal trees. The tone and sustain I lost in the b and e string just made it not worth it...maybe if they were cut in half..That being said if I was building a brand new guitar these might come in handy dep on style of guitar maybe a metal style guitar..these would look right..all black and chrome...
