This is a set of 3 chrome-plated string retainers for guitar, cigar box guitar and more. These are used any time you want to pull the string height down before they cross the nut, to help with break angle and get better string tension. These are especially good if you are building cigar box guitars without angled headstocks, which often have troubles with string height and break angle.

This is a more deluxe style of string retainer than the other we offer - the portion that touches the string actually spins, so that as the string is tightened or loosened it is not dragged across an unyielding metal edge. This is a lot easier on the strings and as such this style of string retainer is often preferred by discerning builders and players.

A set of three of these will handle 6 total strings (each retainer handles two strings). Mounting screws are included.
