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.

Offer metal roller trees instead of plastic.

I really wish these were stainless or aluminum. Something about plastic makes it feel like it reduces the guitars value.

String trees

By

Verified Buyer


I just put these on 2 of my guitars; one is a Nashville Tele on which I have replaced the stock "vintage" style tuners and bridge. The posts on the Schaller M6 tuners I used were a bit long, so this one required 2 trees. These trees are a bit on the tall side but are relatively easy to grind the base off to shorten them if needed, and so far, so good. The other guitar is a Frankenstrat that started out life as a 1994 Fender Roadhouse but now has new neck, bridge, electronics and tuners. I was able to get the correct string angle from the nut to the posts on the first 2 strings without modifying the tree. Seems to be pretty much frictionless now.

i love these little tiny roller string retainers.. especially on my 2 fender strats, they are the only retainers that i found that wont de-tune my "g" string. i did have to lube the rollers up with plain chap stick lip balm (but that goes without saying when it comes to any metal on metal items) also i did find myself winding my "g" string backwards around the tuning machine.(suggested by the fender factory rep)...all in all, with any other string retainer the "g" string would easily de-tune... thanks stew mac for having these on hand.... i would absolutely recommend these to anyone!!!

good retainers

The issue that I have is that the body of these retainers is plastic! I would have preferred a metal base on them, but they installed easily & are holding just fine. Maybe if I would have done my research & read a few more reviews I would have noticed this fact. So no fault of Stew-Mac. Bottom line...good product.

These string retainers work well and look good with black hardware! I can understand why people wouldn't like them with other hardware though.

Work well, cosmetics are lacking

These string trees work smoothly, but they don't look that great. The plastic body is really bulky, and it has a weird flat circle on the top, which stands out in a bad way against the textured body.
