    Hey, I was Googling the String Butler... found a YouTube video of a guy who agrees with us about Ernie Ball.



    Pretty decent video of the product.

    Properly cut and lubed nut will solve this....I use graphite shaved from a pencil right in the groove, works like magik .....

    but I get the idea.....unfortunately its an over engineered device....but might benefit some porrer made models

    Not at all. Just clarifying what I was actually looking for. Don't try to make it into something it's not.

    If we can get a model the works upside-down when attached to the A and B strings... I think people with Les Paul 100 headstock logos might want to buy this.

    PRS don't need it... Like the EB guits, they got the headstock right!

    I'm a metal guy, I like explorers and V's. I made pickguards out of diamond sheet metal for mine.
    This thing is still ugly as sin.

    Just put a couple sheetrock screws in the headstock and call it a "Newenglander."

    Time spent learning to properly string your guitar, stretch your strings, and lube the nut,...goes a long way towards not having tuning problems.

    seems like 90% of tuning issues are cockpit problems, not a problem with the plane.

    (imo)

    Even with knowing all of that and a lubed tusq nut I still get binding issues on the g string.

    This whole sentence just sounds all sorts of wrong. Lol

    Absolutely! Environmental conditions aside, there should be no reason to need this gadget.
