I put a hipshot two string retainer on my 08 Geddy Lee JB to hopefully add a little sustain to my A string. It also was retaining the D string. A bit of redundancy on the D since it was also retained by the stock retaining post. At my weekly church gig a few weeks later, my E string kept popping out of the nut. So i replaced the two string hipshot with a three string hipshot so now I have the E, A, and D retained just past the nut. The G is retained with the stock retainer. My question is: Is this too much retention? Is it bad to have that sharp downward angle on the strings right after the nut. I believe that I am perceiving an increase in sustain, but it may be all in my head. I know that that E string's not going to go anywhere, but is there a downside I'm not considering? What are some general thoughts about string retention on Fender basses? I will hopefully have a pic up within 24 hrs to illustrate my situation.
