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.

Improved tuning.

By

Verified Buyer


No more pinging from the area above the nut while tuning and/or bending/ whammy use. I installed on a Xavier Strat and a Xavier Tele and got improved tuning from these lower budget guitars, that look pretty good but have tuning issues.Not going to get a Ferrari for 300 bucks.They came stock with folded steel tee's that grab.These retainers make the problem diminished.

Quality product. No issues. Easy Install

By

When I rebuilt my tele-clone, I swapped out the regular trees for these rollers. This was about 4 years ago, and they are standing the test of time. I have had no issues with these rollers whatsoever. I am not sure how much they actually "roll", but I'm certain that the rounded edge puts less strain on the strings than the original trees with the sharp edge. Installation was easy - just used the existing string holes. I would buy again.

Nice quality roller string tree

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

By

Verified Buyer


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...

looks good

By

this product looks good but I went back to the original tree , the roller appears to require a height setting to make it work
