Comments about Fender American Standard String Guide (2):

Very nice string guides although the little placement nub that requires drilling a small hole in the head stock is not needed. Who needs another whole in their guitar. I snipped it off and sanded the bottom of the guide flat.

    Blows away the vintage string trees gets a 5 from me

    By Walter J

    from Las Vegas Nv.

    Comments about Fender American Standard String Guide (2):

    I have 2012 Squier Affinity Strat as a project guitar and I was so tired of the stock vintage style string trees hanging up and breaking my high E string about once a week when either using the tremolo or stretching the E string when playing (yes I did widen the nut slots to use 10's) I couldn't take it any more. Install was a breeze I put a piece of masking tape down lined up the trees and tightened the screw until I had a mark in the tape for the second hole, all I had to do was push a 6 penny nail into the tape on the headstock for a starter mark to drill but I could have just hit it with a hammer if I put backing behind the headstock easy, easy, easy, the hole needs to be so small for the holding pin, that's the whole point of the pin to keep it from moving side to side. only thing left I have to do to this guitar is install Fender locking machine heads and all the stock Squier electronics and hardware will be replaced with Fender USA parts, I put in all Fender parts, TexMex pups,500k pots with .022 capacitors,Black accessory kit (knobs,pup covers, 5 way cap, whammy bar end cap,back tremolo cover) the back cover is slotted and not 6 holes so you change strings without pulling off the cover (for anyone just getting their first guitar this is the way to upgrade), this sounds and plays as good as a USA standard strat now I didn't even have to file the fret ends they came so smooth from the squier factory in china. My total cost into this project strat is about $450 right now (guitar included in that cost) add about another $70 for the Fender locking machine heads my total cost will end up being less than $550 for a new Strat that will blow you away. hope this helps anyone wondering about upgrading a MIM or Squier, keep jamming.

    Should be standard!

    By SCOTT

    from Tampa

    Comments about Fender American Standard String Guide (2):

    I can only presume that the reason these types of string trees are not standard on all Strats is that, right now, they are one of Fenders top 'aftermarket' accessories. In the old days, it was the tuning machines that were immediately replaced. This is an easy, inexpensive upgrade to MIM's, and the evidence that it is an upgrade is the fact that they ARE standard on the American made Strats. They are a functional improvement, as well as an aesthetic improvement - for $5!

    Fender string guides

    By Patrick Martin

    from Edison, NJ

    Comments about Fender American Standard String Guide (2):

    The strings seem to flow better. I only have one complaint, it is hard lining up the back stub, they should include a template.

    little bit of defect

    By Matthew Leslie

    from chi-city

    Comments about Fender American Standard String Guide (2):

    only gave them a 4 because the tree bar wasnt pushed all the way in, but with a couple of taps it went right in. easy to install i like how they have a knubb on the bottom to help keep them centered and not moving all over the place, great upgrad to any guitar with the trees!

    Upgrade to my strats

    By Ryan Deusenberry

    from Carson City, NV

    Comments about Fender American Standard String Guide (2):

    I have been wanting to do some upgrades on my Fender Strats. I had been doing some research and I came upon these types of string trees and i gave it a try. I istalled them on one guitar first and I notice that the guitar stays intune a little better and intonated faster than normal. I do hear a little bit better sound too. It honestly stays in tune better. Especially with whammy bar abuse. Already install the others on another strat, now 2 more strats to go. Can't wait to do the pickups next.

    Looks Great

    By Christian Contreras

    from CA

    Comments about Fender American Standard String Guide (2):

    Bought these for a MIM strat and looks great. Looks a lot better than the stock vintage (My opinion) string guides. For $5 it wont hurt your wallet to add these on. Comes with two, but I only needed one. Great deal! Needed to file that stub down as i did not want to drill a hole in my guitar.

    Nice upgrade to a Mexican

    By Yukon Picker

    from Wasilla, Alaska

    Comments about Fender American Standard String Guide (2):

    I bought a mexican made Fender Roadhouse Strat. Love the guitar, nice vintage tinted neck....but the stamped string guide was cheesey and appeared to put the B & E strings in a bind. Bad design. I installed one of these and took care of the problem. The neck looks better and tunes smoother. If you got a mexican, then spend the five bucks, you won't regret it.
