Roller String Retainers for Guitar, Set of 2

About This Item

Patented rollers help eliminate tuning problems and reduce string breakage.

Mounting screws included.

Pilot holes required: Installing delicate screws such as these into hard maple requires great care and accuracy. We highly recommend using a 5/64" 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.

I didn't end up using them.

By

Verified Buyer


I didn't end up using them because I thought the screws were a little to short but the main reason was the string spacing was to wide for my strat like the other reviewer said. I'm most likely going to get the black tusq ones Stew offers.

These are probably the better ones available in the market in terms of functionality. The only issue is that they are bulky!

Unuseable on Strats

By

Verified Buyer


Don't know what the buyers were thinking when they bought these. The string spacing on these is 0.321" ( really wide ). All of my strats have string spacings between 0.250" and 0.282" ( depending on the neck width ). The build quality is poor ( not evenly spaced rollers ). The big block of black plastic looks ugly on a natural wood headstock. Stay away from these unless you need an extra wide string string spacing on a dark colored headstock.

Work just fine as a string tee replacement

By

Verified Buyer


Used these to upgrade a used Squier Stratocaster I picked up. They do a better job than the string tees that were there. I will admit I don't do extreme whammy bar yanking, but I also don't want to have tuning problems, so these were a good solution. Just wish they were a little less clunky visually.

Inexpensive upgrade

By

Verified Buyer


An inexpensive upgrade that is well worth the price. I find these have helped with tuning stability, and no more pinging when using the tremolo.

Solved an annoying tuning problem.

Verified Buyer


I had non-roller string trees on my tele. Even with lube, the tuning wasn't stable. I installed these roller string trees and the problem went away. Easy fix.

Improved tuning.

By

Verified Buyer


No more pinging from the area above the nut while tuning and/or bending/ whammy use. I installed on a Xavier Strat and a Xavier Tele and got improved tuning from these lower budget guitars, that look pretty good but have tuning issues.Not going to get a Ferrari for 300 bucks.They came stock with folded steel tee's that grab.These retainers make the problem diminished.
