TUSQ XL String Trees

About This Item

Great for non-locking tremolo setups. Teflon® polymer retainers relieve string friction to help prevent tuning problems.

Traditional metal string trees merely maintain sufficient string angle over the nut. Graph Tech's super-slick Teflon®-impregnated TUSQ XL® string trees relieve string friction as well, to help prevent tuning problems. They're made of the same self-lubricating material used in popular TUSQ XL nuts, a high density polymer that enables more efficient string energy transfer. TUSQ XL string trees are a practical addition to a non-locking tremolo setup, for smoother and more accurate return to pitch.

Set of 2. Each string tree holds down two strings.

Each set includes one short and two long Phillips mounting screws to allow you to have the downward angle required. You can cut/nip the support collar off to achieve a steeper angle typically used for E and B strings.

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.

A happy life is found in the balance on the continuum of friction & lubrication

After fitting my "Modcaster" Tele with a Parsons-White B-bender & Staggered locking tuners I replaced the factory string thing with the "TUSQ XL String Tree" ....like butter, so smooth!

Stable tuning

By

Verified Buyer


These trees along with a Tusq XL nut provide super stable tuning, especially with overly-active tremolos.

Tried these out just for fun to go with a new nut.

These graph tech trees work pretty good. I think they look nice too. Makes for an
inexpensive upgrade.

Nicer than the stock string trees

By

Verified Buyer


These seem nicer than the stock string trees. I knocked off a star because the screws they sent are almost too short. They do not grab as much of the wood in the headstock as the stock screws. I am a little concerned about them pulling out of the headstock some.
