    Default String Retainer Question

    Should this Tele get a string retainer? And if so, where do I put it?

    I'm not at a computer where I can see your pic, but yeah ... tele's need a string retainer to help create downward pressure on the nut.

    theres a telecaster in the pic!!?...i hadn't seen it!

    in all seriousness yes it should have a retainer but only on the e and b strings same as a strat dont put one on the g and d strings they cause more tuning problems.


    or you could always try some nipple clamps!

    *EDIT*

    .... unless you're using a locking nut.

    Again, I can't see your pic.

    Dino. When can you see the pic? This is a very serious issue.
    And remember, you should know me by now.

    not sure about a string retainer, but the pic is certainly creating a downward pressure on my nuts.

    Ron, I think you need to change the decal to a fender nipplecatcher don't think the mighty FMIC have registered that one yet, it's about the only thing the haven't.

    I knew that Sustainer and Shirtless look was going to catch up with Andrew at some point. I just can't believe someone finally got a picture of it.

    I guess it serves him right, having all of those Wolfgangs and the one time he uses a Tele, he get's his nipple caught!
