Individual roller string guide for use on Stratocaster/Telecaster guitars.

String trees are a necessary addition to most guitars that don't have an angled headstock. They provide the correct amount of tension where the strings break over the nut.

Essentially, they increase the string’s break angle (the angle a string makes where it bends over a nut or a bridge) and ensures that the strings won’t come unseated in the nut slot.

The added pressure also means you'll get more sustain when the string is played open.

Overall, string trees are a vital component for guitar with a straight headstock design. It is a very simple component but can significantly help tuning stability.

Rhys Griffiths
Cylinder string guide for strat/tele

Very good product, easy to fit, good upgrade for an intermediate guitar.

Antony Equeall
Did the job, not very high quality.

Roller and spacer were as described.
The screw was very poor quality and rounded almost instantly as soon as any torque was applied. Screw was also was very long and too thin for the original hole (2015 Mexican Telecaster) used a small dowel in the hole to fill to gap hoping that would work, had to use a silver screw from a donor guitar to fit the part in the end which spoils the look.

Would not buy again.
