    Is this wrong? It looks wrong, but I don't know. The string trees have no spacers.

    Being in the Christmas Spirit, i think tree placement, and decoration, is an important topic ...

    Sometimes a person might want a lot of down pressure on the nut.............as long as you don't have binding issues when using the trem (Strat)........or bending............but then again;
    ALWAYS LUBE THE NUT SLOTS.

    Otherwise you normally have the angle of all the strings run about the same, peg to nut, with the winding going down, (and those look very nice!) and the e & b can be a tad sharper.

    So you can space the tree accordingly.

    My 2009 MiM Telecaster came from the factory just like that!
