Re: String Tree Height?
If you look at the nut, you should see that it curves down towards the head. With the string tree loose you'll see that there's a tiny gap at the back of the nut (head side) between the string and the nut.
This gap, when you lock the nut down, will cause the strings to pull sharp. What I do is set the tree height so that there is no gap underneath the string and nut. That way, when I lock the nut down the strings don't pull
n.b. This is for Edge or Lo-pro Edge guitars only. I don't know if they've changed the design. Agree with GuitarBizarre above for other guitars.
