LSR roller nut on Les Paul-type neck/headstock

Posted by JimmyR on Thu, 03/25/04 - 13:06:44.

I have a very nice Warmoth parts "Les Paul" with a Wilkinson trem on it. I have good Schaller locking tuners on the guitar. I have done just about all I can with the (graphite) nut to make the strings not hang. It works fairly well, but of course not perfectly. Has anyone successfully put an LSR nut on something like this? The problem is NOT the angled headstock, but the side-angle the strings make going from nut to tuners. I was wondering if the side-loading on the bearings would cancel out any benefits. There is a pic of someone doing this on a site, but have not been able to find out from the guy if it worked well, although his workmanship looks just fine. Any ideas?
