Ok, I'm not someone to rave or hype something that doesn't really knock me out. But this stuff really is better than the other common substitutes.(graphite, oil, vasoline, wax, etc.) I have used all these and combinations and they either are not very good from the start or won't last long. Big Bends Nut Sauce not only works better, but it stays put and keeps on working for the life of the strings.

If you use a tremolo or floating trem or just a stickler for tuning stability, don't mess around. I put off buying this stuff for a long time, becuase it seemed just a bit too much money.w I finally
Well the main feature is the substance itself, but the next cool feature is the syringe. It makes it possible to get it right where you want it and nowhere else. The applicators are great too. Allows you get it in even tighter spaces
I suppose I have to drop a point since it is rather pricey for the amount. But it does only take a very small amount so the 1.5cc amount is going to last a long time

Can buy petroleum free, Teflon gear grease from any hobby store. It's the same product..1/3 the price, 3 times as much product in tube. Teflon grease is made by LaBelle. Ask the hobby store to order for you if not in store. You can buy this grease from Niedzalkoski's Train Shop in Jeannette, PA. They will ship.

        Comments about Big Bends Nut Sauce Tuning Lubricant:

        It's pricey, but worth it. All tuning problems are caused by friction at the nut. Locking tuners are a tragic waste of money. Think about it: 1) Tuning machines use worm gears, WHICH ARE PHYSICALLY INCAPABLE OF SLIPPING. 2) If you wind the string on the post properly, once you get all the slack out of it it's not going to move either. This stuff solved all my tuning problems.

              Les Paul "G" string constantly would go out of tune with standard playing....NOW it stays in tune with no issues. It did take two applications of the lubricant. I now am using it with my Telecaster and Stratocaster with very similar reports. Would recommend to anyone!

                  This stuff really works well. Anywhere any movement is involved lubricate with this.

                  Lubricates strings over nut on electric and acoustic. The real magic is with a tremolo like the Stratocaster. Pivot points, all pivot points, spring connections, nut, anywhere there is movement. The roller nut on my Strat looks like a grease pit but NOTHING sticks.

                  I know this stuff is pricey. If all you do it lube the nut the small container will last a good while. If you have a trem; get more.

                  I was about to modify the Bigsby tremolo, but thought I'd try Big Bends Nut Sauce first. It solved the tuning problem for a fraction of the cost of modifying the Bigsby.

                  Comments about Big Bends Nut Sauce Tuning Lubricant:

                  I used to use vaseline with a bit of graphite mixed in, and I'd apply it to the nut with a toothpick. Messy, and the black didn't look good.

                  This stuff might have a bit of graphite (I think I see a few flecks), but it's mostly clear, and very easy to apply.

                  Lubricates very well, especially the G and D strings on 3x3 headstocks. I use it on my Strat and Tele, too.

                  The tube is tiny, but if you use it properly (sparingly) it lasts a long time, and is worth the money.
