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.

I recently bought two sets of these and installed one set on my son's Squier mini strat and the other on a tele knock off that I own. They helped with the tuning stability on both guitars. Would definitely recommend these!

the best string trees

By

Verified Buyer


Actually the best string tree is no string tree, but if your neck needs one, these are as frictionless as I have seen. They keep the skinny strings from binding due to their composition, and they work very well. A little pricey, but if you bend strings, you will be glad you have them.

My 1994 Stratocaster stays in tune!

I installed these on my 1994 Fender Strat because it's never stayed in tune. I copied the installation location from my Yamaha Variax Standard because it always stays in tune and I'm a happy camper! (I'm using these along with a Black TUSQ XL pre slotted nut)
Thanks!

These string trees are the only ones I use since discovering them. Easy to install correctly and look much better than stamped metal ones used by fender. Strings slide easily on the TUSQ plastic so tuning is easy.
