  • where can i get grommets for floyd rose locking nuts?

    It's the one you put with the screws that go to the rear of the neck. I think my Ibanez S470 needs one cuz I want to increase sustain. it has a lo-trs 2 trem that's kinda light. where can I get these grommets?

        There are no grommets for the Ibanez. The Hex bolts go thru the neck, to the locking nut.

          I don't think he knows what the parts are and is simply inventing a new name for them

          These are Grommets. They are typically found on Tents, canvases and pickup truck covers. There are two sides to them, a male and female and you pound the two together with a hammer or press like a rivet. Or they can screw together or be soldered together.

          Sorry I've never seen anything close to it on a guitar in any shape or size.

          This is a typical Floyd nut. They contain Hex screws, Square washers on top, Square threaded bolts, and/or threaded base, usually shims and whatever screws are used to mount it.

          There are no grommets

          This one is a whopping $2 on EBay. Its not even worth putting up a post if its worn, just but a new one. While you're at it, buy a Philips screw driver and learn how to twist screws. It sure ain't rocket science changing one out but I suppose some people are technically handicapped when it comes to twisting a screwdriver.

            You could ask Wallace where he got his.

              I think theyre called 'washer's too. the point is to protect the neck from cracking at the back of the locking nut. it also increases sustain and resonance.

                  What Gardo said. And no, they don't increase anything, other then weight.
