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.

Replaced cheap pot metal trees. Provided much needed tuning stability along with a new Tusq XL nut.

I added these to my Jackson. Much better string alignment from the nut to the tuning machines.

Awesome Product!

The Tusq string tree I added to my Jimi Hendrix Strat really helps keep it in tune. With the stock stamped tree it constantly hung up, effecting tuning stability. That's over now, thanks StewMac

an extra good addition .

I had a black one of these Tusq string trees on a guitar, so I swapped it so the guitar would have cream accents. I also used two more on a guitar with cream paint, so it fit right in. I think it improves play-ability. Some of my guitars have Tusq saddles, so these products work for better sound as well.

The last addition to a custom "Funkycaster" build.
Seem to be just what I needed for trees, time will tell.

Strings no longer binding

By

Verified Buyer


These string trees are supposed to solve the issue of strings binding that is common with other types of string trees and they do. If you have a strat and actually use the tremolo these really are a improvement over the stock string trees.
