Coarse tuners part 5

The coarse tuners that I made for the black SG with the Schaller fine tuning bridge were - after all - too troublesome to string and adjust. I've made another attempt, this time consisting of
- a hex screw going through the head plate,
- an acorn nut with a hole for the string and the top cut off,
- and a hex blind screw going through the top of the acorn not, securing the string against the end of the big hex screw.

All screws have been shortened and filed flat at the end. Many other tubes, screws, etc, can be used. The string is secured at the bridge end, inserted through the hole of the acorn nut.

It seems to work nicely, but I'll have to make some more and try different string gauges.

Nice. That's creative use of standard components. I like the reversed strat jack plate too.
