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.

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.

I was restoring an early 50's Tele copy for a friend and these completed the look perfectly. They're solidly built & glide nice & easy.

These are great! Vintage look, but a more substantial feel! Easy to install and fixed the nut break-angle issues with a bolt-on neck.
