Its a locking nut that still ensures the original nut stays in position right?

I wouldnt know what they are called or how to search for them but its quite a good concept.

Where did you find this picture? That'd be a great place to start your search. Looks like a great idea, make you post on here anything you find! I wanna know more...

Damn it. Now I gotta get a set myself. I'll leave a post if I do find out what it is exactly.

Good luck finding something like that. They haven't used that type of locking nut since probably the late 80's.

This is terrible advice. Even worse than the useless dry, sarcastic comment I made.

Nah it's not one of them, they're just regular type locking nuts made by gotoh.

The only thing I can find on this thing is someone linking an image of one on sevenstring website from 2010. Really wanna find this.

Yeah I googled every name too, lets hope someone could enlighten us...

Staggered locking tuners and a graphite lubed bone nut will do just as good as that thing, if not better. That break angle over the nut pretty extreme. The less string tension on the nut, the better off you'll be if you're using a trem.

I asked the guy who posted the photo if he could give me more information about it.

Kahler makes behind-the-nut string locks and has for years, but I don't think Kahler made that one (I haven't seen on with a string tree like that...). If you want one of their current behind-the-nut string locks, check with www.wammiworld.com. Still available.

I have several guitars with Kahler Flip-Lock behind the nut locks (most date from the 80's). Unfortunately Kahler discontinued them and ran out of old stock a couple of years ago. But you might be able to hunt one down, particularly if someone's got an old neck that they're getting rid of that had one. I love 'em.



On my guitars these work easily as well as the Floyd locking nuts (and look cleaner as well).

BTW, my money is on the OP's photo belonging to one of the old early '80's Stratocaster Elites.
They ground through several variants of behind the nut locks, most (if not all) Kahler items.
