  • Hi, Ya'll

    i missed this place terribly for two weeks.

    i have a question:


    i installed fender locking tuners on my strat over the holidays. these tuners differ from other tuners with their locking mechanism, which is thumb-wheels instead of screws that are locked with an allen wrench or screwdriver. in my opinion, they cannot be tightened as securely and tuning stability has been improved but not eliminated. anyone have experience with this?

    good point. i always put a little graphite in the slots when changing strings but if it's too tight, all the graphite i can muster won't do any good. i was wondering if anyone found it necessary to use a wrench on these "thumbscrews".

      i stuck with 11's, which i've used for at least a year. i heard one suggestion to go down to 10's with locking tuners. i'm not sure what the reasoning is (less stress on the locks?) but the low E goes out the most.

        are 11's the original guage the guitar came with?

        sometimes, if you from bigger to smaller, you should be ok.....if ya go from smaller to larger than the originals ya have some problems..........not always ....but sometimes.........hows that for vague

          hiya, dg.

          well, i think you got me there...i put on new strings, tuned to pitch, pulled on them a little, retuned and been tuning ever since.
          maybe i haven't waited long enough (not played it enough, either)?
          do you have a standard when it comes to stretching strings? one octave above pitch, ect.?

            I have a Strat with locking tuners and a LSR roller nut. It's pretty Damn stable. Not nearly as good as my Jem and UVs but good. If you have a standard nut and string trees, they are two friction points that need to be dealt with. The tuners aren't the problem.

              a roller nut was gonna be my next option. i don't want to go any further with the mods than i have to....the tuners were an easy fix (did that myself), but the roller nut would involve a luthier, right?

              and dg........i never stretch those strings that much. i'm sure that's part of the problem. thanks, fellers.
