Today I’m going to talk about the best all-around guitar lubricant I’ve ever used,
Big Bends Nut Sauce Tuning Lubricant
There are a lot of moving parts on your guitar. Think about all the things that move on your guitar and you can lube most of them with Big Bends Nut Sauce. Here’s a list:
- The strings in the nut slots (Nut Sauce’s original use)
- The strings over the bridge saddles
- The pivot points on your floating tremolo whammy bar system.
- The string trees on the headstock
- The strap buttons on your strap lock system.
I use Big Bends Nut Sauce on every single one of these areas and my guitars stay in tune incredibly well. Big Bends Nut Sauce makes my Fender American Deluxe Stratocasters stay in tune almost as well as my double locking Floyd Rose systems on my Ibanez and hand made guitars. My straplocks don’t show any of the wear and tear you usually get from the constant swinging of the strap in the lock channel either. It also helps to keep the strap buttons from loosening up by reducing friction between the strap side and the button side of the lock system.
I used to use graphite, or pencil lead. I’ve even tried vaseline and Chap Stick. They all made a mess of my guitar and didn’t really work all that well. I’ve still got dirty pencil lead graphite smudges on my unfinished birdseye maple neck on a custom made Stratocaster. Big Bends goes on easy and stays where you put it. It’s also very clean even if you put a bit too much on.
So I’m wholeheartedly recommending Big Bends Nut Sauce Tuning Lubricant with my highest endorsement. It blows plain old graphite away!
