Improving the tuning stability to your 3+3 headstock guitar

The patented design of the string butler is attached to the tuning posts of your guitar and corrects angles of the A, D, G, B strings ( + E strings for V4 ) going through the nut on 3+3 headstock designed guitars.This realignment corrects the position of the A, D, G, B strings ( + E strings for V4 ) to a straight line through the saddle notches, therefore preventing the guitar strings from getting stuck in the saddle. These 4 strings ( or 6 strings for V4) are then guided on 4 small rollers ( or 6 small rollers for V4) for minimal friction.

We have 4 different colors to match your headstock so it looks great!!!! We carry 3 different versions. All you need to do is determine:

A) if you have compatible tuners. Vintage Keystone Tuners with bushings are not compatible. Some locking tuners are also not compatible. Robot tuners are not compatible.

B) the exact width in mm centre to centre of the tuning posts you will be installing them on. This measurement determines what version you need. V3 fits a wider variety of headstocks. V4 fits extra wide headstocks and only available in black

C) the color you want. Note Clear V2 not available.

For a musician, there is probably nothing worse than having to play on an out of tune instrument. Many guitarists have this problem when they bend strings. You end up tuning your guitar over and over again or take your chances when playing on stage. This happens with many 3+3 headstocks designed guitars. Bending a kinked string pulls the kink into the nut where it gets stuck until it’s pulled out again by tuning. If you tune your guitar at this point you can hear a “pling” sound.

The “STRING BUTLER” takes the strings out of the nut in a straight line and guides them over a set of rollers to the machine heads therefore the strings cannot get kinked behind the nut.
