The hole has a tiny metal sleeve in it from the other tuners, which i can remove, i measured it with the sleeve in.Blue313 said:GoDrex said:sounds like binding at the nut
That was my first thought too, plus its a cheap fix. Does it jump in pitch or make a tinking sounds as you tune it? How much of the string is buried in the nut?
As far as replacements, the closest option I can find is these, but they're still a hair larger than the existing holes.
With a tuner hole that small (1/4 inch) you'll have to enlarge them to make a decent set of tuners fit.
IMHO..he should put the cash toward another guitar. Plus that guitar is 3/4 scale....he'll want a full sized axe eventually.
Buy some "guitar grease"

A good friend of mine taught me an even cheaper trick. I am sure that somebody here will scream at me and tell me this is all wrong and will destroy my guitar in fifty years, but I don't care, it works and I see no adverse effects. here it is, you ready??? Take a graphite pencil and run it over the nut slots a couple times, each time you change strings. That's it. Like I said, it works!
