Guitar String Retainers

About This Item

These metal string trees screw into a Fender or similar peghead to maintain the string angle at the nut. Each holds down two strings.

Same style string retainers that were used on a post '57 Strat®, Tele® and similar instruments.

A better match on vintage guitars: the Relic Nickel plating has an aged look, perfect for repairing old guitars, when shiny hardware looks out of place.

Set of 2 includes: 2 string retainers with mounting screws, and spacers (short and tall). Use the short spacer for the E and B strings (many early instruments only used one string retainer for the 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 No.44 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.

Wanted to resolve some string buzzing fiddling with the saddles and nut did not help. added a pair to increase the back angle from the nut and made everything alright for me. They are nice to use, be sure to get the machinist # recomended drill bit and lube the screws.

As the title said it has served all those purpose and really smoothens out your note clarity for DGBE(high) strings. Avoid sitar sound as well. Applied this to a Stratocaster and Telecaster. Work wells.
