Vintage-Style String Retainer

About This Item

The late '40s early '50s Fender string tree used on Broadcasters, Telecasters®, and Stratocasters®.

Individual 3/8"-diameter retainer holds down two strings. Mounting screw included.

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.

Looks great

Put this on my reliced jazzmaster kit build and it looks great. I followed instructions I found on YouTube. Love it just use a lubricant and line up with strings on the guitar.

Poor finish

By

Verified Buyer


The batch I received have odd burred plating on the outermost edge, and the raised center ridge adjacent the screw countersink if off of center.

Cast or die mishap?

Things happen. No big whoop...but returning.

Nothing flashy, nothing special. They do the trick and work just fine.

Works well

By

Verified Buyer


The retainers work well, but the plating is rough, looks a little sloppy. The slot the strings go through is smooth and well finished.

I just wanted a better string tree for my Mexican Tele. It works as it should, and it looks great! Installation was very easy.
