Strat owners...

Just wondering what your feelings are on string trees for the D and G string. I know some people use staggered tuning machines. Some prefer roller string trees. I just set up a strat and the owner says it's buzzing at the G string I had noticed the break angle on the G string over the nut to be near a straight angle and I suspect that to be the culprit. I've read in Fender forums and some suggest heavier strings. I went from 9s to 11s as per customer request. The action was higher than I would have liked it.

Looking forward to your thoughts.

Thanks.

My break angle is close to being straight, but I haven't noticed any buzzing. Then again, I like my Strat to have an action close to the higher side of things. What kind of Strat is this (country of origin, model)?

It's a MIM special run. It had gold hardware noiseless pups. Not sure of the model.

string trees are not going to fix a buzz or create a buzz unless they are really loose.

I used 2 sets of string trees (roller type) on a Mexican Strat I built up. I wanted more downward pressure on the nut but it had nothing to do with fixing a buzz.

hope this helps.
