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.

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

Works well

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

These string retainers look like a million bucks. Vintage like the 50's originals. Price is right and shipping was fast. Thanks

Hard to find these elsewhere!

Put them on my Squier and they work and look great. This is a no-brainer purchase for those looking to replace the 'bent scrap' string trees.
