I like it.



(The E-string broke when I was taking the old bat-wing off. )
So this is my partscaster project guitar. It has stable tuning for the most part but the bat-wing string tree was giving me some problems. I went looking for a replacement for that, thinking about Rollers and such...
I stumbled across a mention of this little thing on some other guitar forum. The price was just about the same and I liked the idea of being a test-mule for a new project.

So the idea of this is that the string tree moves when the string moves. When you do a bend, the Dynaguide will shift with the string and then shift back again afterward.

In short, it works good so far. It definitely stopped the binding problem. I think it looks cool. Not too difficult to install.
Admittedly it's just a string tree, but when you're rocking a Squier Strat it feels nice to have a little pinch of "custom" mojo. It can't make a good guitar play better but it seems like a nice alternative if you're upgrading a cheaper Strat style guitar. It was like 10 bucks shipped to my door.

I'm just a customer.
I'm not advertising and I'm not affiliated with the owner. If you're interested in it you can find it pretty easily through your search-bar. It looks like his business is just starting out, so if you're sympathetic to the little guy like I am you might want to check it out. Peace out!

staggered tuners is the way to go eliminates the need for a string tree altogether. cool though and a cheap fix.

I don't like the idea of having the thread the string through the tree. However, I agree that these little touches make all the difference to our perception. - It was the over-engineered string trees (they have an adjusting screw on the back) on Blade guitars that first attracted me to them.

geez you guys are lazy

is not necessarily lazy. It's that every time I would restring it I would forget to thread it through and I would have to do it over. haha. it is so automatic for me to do and I have so many guitars I would never remember.

Meh. Staggered tuners eliminated the need for this silly sort of thing.

I use roller trees

I'm not a fan of the way those look at all, looks like a small drawer handle and the string still drags on the bar. A roller tree would be better

Staggered tuners are nice, but a roller tree is way cheaper

Yeah I was close to just getting the American standard string-tree for the same price as this one.

It does drag on the bar, but that's the point. There's a swivel point down at the base. The bar moves with the string. Friction is actually not a problem with this one.
