Another pesky guitar gadget

Recommended Posts

I did have this problem with one Les Paul I had but a little nutSauce and using a string as a nut file cured the problem for grins please review the following. 

From the advertisement
A three-by-three headstock looks the business, but it can result in tuning problems, owing to the fact the four center strings pull sideways at the back of the nut; fortunately, dB Instrument Amp reckons it finally has the solution with the TruGlide.

The electric and acoustic guitar tuning stabilizer aims to support the bottom of the string then guide it to the tuners using a low-friction curved surface, allowing the strings to move freely and more easily return to pitch.

Aside from increasing the precision of the guitar’s tuners, the TruGlide has the added bonus of dampening ringing strings above the nut.

It certainly looks like a worthwhile purchase for Les Paul players struggling with that pesky G string - the TruGlide is available now for $19.95 from Db Instrument Amp.

In the early 1930s Kay figured this out and came out with the "Oahu" headstock which did a much better job of lining up strings than most others.

If that thing rests against both E string posts, it becomes another source of above the nut buzzing. Besides, it is ugly AF! Good thing they are sold out. 😉
