tuning on a 3-a-side guitar


Recommended Posts

hey guys,

i was wondering if anyone had any ideas on how to fix the tuning instability on a Gibson style 3-a-side headstock design, particularly on the 3rd string. i think it may be the "v" angle it goes in at, which causes binding at the nut. does anyone have any suggestions which may fix this, i have thought a string retainer type thing, to give a straight (er) string pull, but i am unsure.
