ES-339 Tuning Peg nut/washer issue


Recommended Posts

Good morning,


This issue is probably not ES-339-specific, but I threw my model out there just in case.


Anyway, I've got an odd issue that my limited experience has never come across before: My high E and A string tuning peg nuts/washers never tighten. I took them off to inspect them outside of the headstock, and they work fine. I then installed them without the washer, and the nut tightenes fine. However, with the washer, the nuts just spin and spin.


I suppose I could get a thinner washer from a hardware store to see if that resolves the problem -- seems like a logical step. But I was curious if anyone else has ever experienced this issue and had to do something different to get the washers to tighten?


Thanks all!
