– Is your guitar difficult to tune?
– Are the machine heads on your guitar difficult to turn?
– Are you tired of having to retune a couple of strings after every song in your setlist?
– Then you will love the String Butler!!

If the design of a guitar headstock doesn’t position the machine heads directly in line with the slot in the nut, then high friction is generated between the nut and the string. This friction makes it difficult to tune the guitar accurately and the tuning may change while you are playing. In severe cases it is also difficult to turn the machine heads which can damage them. The String Butler sends the strings straight through the nut which reduces this troublesome friction.

The String Butler is designed to address well known tuning stability issues on guitars similar to, but not limited to, the Gibson or Epiphone Les Paul.

Currently available in 3 Chrome plated colors: Black, Gold, and Silver.
