Yes, on stage, everything that secures strings to the body/neck really matters. If not, tell your drummer and bass man to turn down!
For what it's worth, I clamped one of this things on my Ibanez that has a dead spot. It's wonky as it some times cures it and some times it just doesn't work, even when it literally stayed at the exact same place on the headstock.No idea of if this works but if anyone has experience..........
Tuners only do one thing. They either tighten or loosen the string.On my Corsa Manalishi, I went from Grovers to locking Tonepros, to Klusons and back to the original Grovers.
That was the voice of the guitar originally (for me) and it went away with the different tuners.
From then on I would put Grovers in a guitar when aiming for girth and sustain. Klusons when aiming for softer, more light vintage-y tones. Same with tailpiece material.
All is subjective though.
BTW I love the rig in the third pic!
Don’t be sorry. Grammar Nazis should be sorry for being, well... You know, just grammar nazis.
Historically I would have agreed with you and I even dismissed this thread early on, but after 25 years with traditional ferrules I recently put a solid brass block in the back of one of my home builds. Really did it more for looks (ferrules weren't lined up straight) and didn't expect much except a slightly heavier body. Being a semi-hollow it was close to neck heavy, so it could only help.Tuners only do one thing. They either tighten or loosen the string.
