This is desirable to avoid sources of friction, giving greater tuning stability when using a vibrato device.
They lock the string in a very easy way.
The string locks into a hole in the post by a simple turn: counter clockwise.
You can lock the string in less than one turn of the post. The guitar stays perfectly in tune while playing. Due to our cabon reinforced supernecks, we obtained the perfect combination between easy string changing and accurate tuning.
The HAPM version is also adjustable in height.
