Picture(s) of that nut ?
You'll get used to those tuners. I hated them for my first 3 or 4 string changes. Now I demand them on all my guitars.I will snap a pic tomorrow. I don't believe it's wound too high especially considering they are the PITA vintage style tuners.
Well, it was just a guess. It is funny/strange that it has never happened before. It will be interesting to find out what the cause is.I will snap a pic tomorrow. I don't believe it's wound too high especially considering they are the PITA vintage style tuners.
Its kind of obvious....that's the problem for sure. A strat need a string tree.No string tree on this guitar.
Haha. True.Only if you want the E string to stay in the nut.
Now the question is ... do the strings go through it ?Haha. True.
Ok, I'm an idiot. I've been playing this guitar for the past hour. It has a string tree.
I have tried to think of every possible way it may happen. Even so far as reviewing the songs. Unfortunately can't remember which tune/s it happened during.When I put a new bridge on my tele as a part of a Bigsby retrofit, I popped the string out of a saddle a couple times. But only when I was playing out, not at home. I obviously play a bit more aggressively when I'm playing with others (in the heat of the moment kind of thing) and the extra downstroke or upstroke power was enough to dislodge the string from what I previously thought was a deep enough groove. Not too much of a problem with a bridge saddle because I could cut the groove deeper (which solved the problem) and adjust the saddle to maintain the correct height. If the problem is the groove isn't cut deep enough in the nut, you may have to do something like shim the nut and cut all six grooves again.
Could you problem be due to a more aggressive attack on the strings? Up-picking would move it to the B and down-picking would pop it off the neck.
Now the question is ... do the strings go through it ?
