Sorry, I don't buy it. I've owned five different Strats, I've assembled three of the five and not a single one of them ever had any sort of tuning issues after a proper set up. Can you explain to me how exactly the different end on a string will keep a guitar in tune better than another? The strings do not move once they are properly strung through the block and around the tuners; they simply change tension. Again, if the tension doesn't return to the proper places, then that's a problem with the set up and not with the ball end of the strings.


haha, you don't have to buy it. All is well.

No matter what gauge of strings you use, for the best tuning stability we recommend using Fender Bullet® strings.


Wow, Fender recommends that strat owners buy their strings? That's a news flash.



I was waiting for someone to make that wise comment. Clearly companies are going to endorse their own products. We know this. The description of the design behind the Fender Bullet strings is what I am trying to highlight here.


@BobHolland That makes me happy because the world needs more bassists!

I guess before bullet strings everyone played out of tune. :wha: :blink: :wha:



Quoth the Fender website: http://www.fender.com/uk/support/stratocaster.php

No matter what gauge of strings you use, for the best tuning stability we recommend using Fender Bullet® strings. The patented bullet-end is specifically designed for all styles of tremolo use, from extreme dives to smooth vibrato passages. The design allows the string to travel freely in the bridge block channel during tremolo use and return afterwards to its original position, seated snugly in the bridge block. This is accomplished by eliminating the extra string wrap and the ball-end (the ball end doesn't fit properly into the string channel). The bullet end has been shaped and sized to match the design of the bridge block channel.


As I said before. Slipping out of tune due to vibrato use is not a problem with all strats but can be for some. And for the record, I don't think the strat was invented many years before the Bullet strings. Fender Bullet strings have been around since the 1950's.
