Question about string tree...

Discussion in 'Luthier's Corner' started by dukey donkey, May 30, 2011.

  1. This is my first build, and I'm trying to figure out if I need a tree or not... I'm doing a flat 2x2 headstock...

    Generally, yes. It keeps downward pressure on the strings so they dont pop out or the nut and what not (there may be more to it but im not sure). Im not a huge fan of straight headstocks but id imagine youre doing it because its somewhat easierto do.
  3. well budget constraints and my fear of building my own neck... sent me to a chinese dealer... they only make flat neck blanks...
