Hi

The Current String Tree on my Fender 50s Classic Player Stratocaster is causing to much friction, making the E and B strings go out of tune when I do bends.

The reason I know it is down to the String Tree is because when I string my guitar so that the strings do not go throught the String Tree, my guitar stays in tune perfectly.

Would you recommend a Roller String Tree or a Graphite one?

Thanks.

Get a roller string tree. They work great (I have them on my Highway 1 Strats) and they are probably easier to find than a graphite tree. They're probably cheaper, too.

You could also just take a small file to the underside of your stock string tree and smooth it up. That would likely eliminate your string friction problem.

I actually have the exact same problem on the exact same guitar. Do you hear a little click when you bend? Cause it's the nut that does that.

I've fixed it now! And it was the String Tree, not the nut.

To fix it, I just 'coloured in' the under side of the String Tree with a graphite pencil, this has stopped my guitar going out of tune. Now, I can bend as much as I want, AND use the whammy bar as much as I want. I really hope it stays like this.

Try it!
