Roller nut... Screws or Glue?

Postby savage » Fri Jun 19, 2009 7:07 am

I'm gonna be puttin together my ideal cheapo guitar.... I am basically putting a guitar that suits my playing better (without spending a fortune)--- P90's, bigsby, roller nut, & locking tuners to start. I am gonna install a B-5 on a "stop-bar" axe. My only question is... Is there any noticable difference between the Fender LSR roller nuts and the wilkinson ones that glue on? My tele that I sold had a fender LSR and I thought it worked fine so that would be my first instinct. Just curious...

I prefer the LSR's also if that makes any difference friend. I think they're a lot smoother.

I don't know about the two nuts in question, but I do know that I would not be in any hurry to glue hardware to a guitar. Screws tend to be fairly easy to undo but when one glues something down it becomes more challenging to replace, repair or remove.
