Wilkinson Guitar Roller Nut
Linear String Rotation (LSR) Roller Nut
6 Individual Rollers

Roller nuts reduce nut resistance to the strings natural movement during play. This six-string linear string rotation (LSR) top mounting roller nut will allow each string to “roll” in a string groove on a camshaft rolling pin reducing undue friction.

Roller nuts can help reduce tuning instability because roller nuts will move (roll) forward and back, while you bend strings up and down. They help allow for long, clear sounds with open strings. With proper installation, a roller nut can give the comfort of a more relaxed bridge, but with lock-style trem stability. Tuning stability can be improved, especially during string bends and whammy bar use.

Be sure to pay attention to the dimensions and measurements given for this item.

Installation & Maintenance Notes

  • If you do not already have the set-up for this specific size of roller nut or have a nut of a different dimension, be aware that you will have to modify the wood of the fretboard. This involves a fair amount of modding, so please do not buy if you don’t know for sure this nut will fit or you are willing and able to handle the job.
  • If your fingerboard has a different radius than this roller nut, the feel may be off and modifications may be required.
  • Be aware that you may need shims (not included) for height adjustment and optimal playability, depending on your current set-up.
  • Note that the rolling pins on a new roller nut must be precisely where the original nut’s lead contact point was located. As always, intonation will have to be reset after installation.
  • Proper maintenance is a must, as always. This item will require typical care.
