Guitar String Retainers

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.
