I was considering installing a Fender LSR Roller Nut on my Strat but have received 180 degree different opinions on the ease of installation. Some say it's a breeze and others make it sound like you would rather be dipped in honey and buried in an anthill. Who here has installed it themselves and what was your experience? Currently I have the nut that came standard with the 2008 MIA Standard Strat. Is it even worth the trouble to do?
I have installed the LSR nut on one of my partscatsers and am very happy with it
I'm into some serious wammy abuse and in my experience the LSR is more stable than my other guitars as far as tuning stability goes. That said, If i only had one guitar I probably wouldn't have installed it and I also wouldn't have modded a genuine fender with one.
If you’re interested in carrying out the installation yourself, here's a link for your perusal.
Hope this helps and let us know how you get on if you have any other questions
