To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyses reviews to verify trustworthiness.
Bought these to replace the cheap and nasty metal trees on my Fender Jaguar. Fit straight on with no modification, and provide much smoother bends and no binding of the strings. A cheap and very worthwhile upgrade to any guitar with a flat neck.
“Sheerness”??? No idea why that’s category for rating these string ... but my advice is change your nut for a Tusq one, get it cut properly to a low 1st fret action and fit Tusq string trees where appropriate for best possible tuning stability. And stretch your string until they stop detuning each time you fit a new set.
Balances perfectly the tension between the tuning post and the nut without undue friction and keeps any tuning issues down to a minimum. Bends and dives return smoothly to their original position. Definitely an improvement on the old squier trees that I had and that actually cut the string at the tuner side a couple of times when giving the Wang bar a thrashing. Why pay top bucks for rollers when these puppies work so well?
Got these from amazon for a great price for my Squier Affinity tele and they are so much better than the stock string trees. If you can get them at a good price I highly recommend! I used the old black screws and they look great all in black.
