TUSQ XL String Trees

About This Item

Great for non-locking tremolo setups. Teflon® polymer retainers relieve string friction to help prevent tuning problems.

Traditional metal string trees merely maintain sufficient string angle over the nut. Graph Tech's super-slick Teflon®-impregnated TUSQ XL® string trees relieve string friction as well, to help prevent tuning problems. They're made of the same self-lubricating material used in popular TUSQ XL nuts, a high density polymer that enables more efficient string energy transfer. TUSQ XL string trees are a practical addition to a non-locking tremolo setup, for smoother and more accurate return to pitch.

Set of 2. Each string tree holds down two strings.

Each set includes one short and two long Phillips mounting screws to allow you to have the downward angle required. You can cut/nip the support collar off to achieve a steeper angle typically used for 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 3/32" 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.

Took the last bit of friction out that was causing tuning issues with vintage style strat tremolo.

Improved Tronical Setup

I use a Tronical tuning system on a "Road Worn" Tele and while I didn't have a huge problem with tuning accuracy prior to installing this item I think it does improve the tuning accuracy/speed and reduces issues with knocking the strings under the single string tree during aggressive bends/tremolo. I only needed one for my tele so the other's a backup or maybe I'll put it on my Strat. I wish they offered an 'off white' or 'vintage' look as the blinding white on this is rather out of place on my 'road worn' Tele, but what the heck... seems to work well, so who's complaining!?
