wow

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 value

The plastic is a litte soft. But still god value for the money.

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.

Functional

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

ugly

I feel they function well but I had to do a lot of mods to them to get the angle right

not a neccesity, but a cool touch to my custom guitar.

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.

Worked very well in my guitar

I used these to replace the cheezy little bent metal scrap that came stock on a strat. I used both of the retainers, on the 4 thinnest strings, spaced out so that the string angle over the nut was pretty uniform. I was concerned at first that the string tension would pull out the little screw that mounts the retainer. It hasn't. They've held solid. I just made sure to drill a pilot hole a little smaller than the screw and it bit down hard! I can confirm that these help tuning issues. The strat stays in tune better than before, especially while doing bigg bends and whammy stuff. The look modernizes an old school strat, too! I like them.
