    Elegant solution to string ringing on headstock

    If you have a Floyd-strat, Charvel or similar guitar with uses a string tension bar behind the locking nut, try this

    I cut out some plastic from a box, and superglued some dishwashing sponge to it.



    This way, it's always there when changing strings.
    The strings will slide in right under the dishwashing sponge so dont have to fiddle with anything during string changes.

    I can't think of any reason that this might make restringing a f'ing nightmare, not one.

    It's not some big block of clamping stuff onto it at least!
