Hi,

I got a used guitar a while ago and I'm having problems with the locking nut. It has a kahler set up so it has the traditional nut combined with a flip lock nut. I've posted a picture below.
The problem is that no matter what I've tried the guitar will not hold tune for very long. I've heard that the locking nut behind traditional nut isn't so great, is that true?
I was thinking of doing away with both and fitting a floyd rose style locking nut. It would require some work but I'm ok with that.

Would that be a better more stable option?

Cheers,
Pete

Thanks for your reply sepulchrave. Yep it seems like a pretty odd design, not sure how they expected it to clamp the stings properly!

Do you think an Allen bolt version in conjunction with a Graphtec nut would be as good as the Floyd type?

Cheers,
Pete
