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

    Comments about Big Bends Nut Sauce Tuning Lubricant:

    It just works... period. I was back and forth between deciding on which set of locking tuners to buy for my strat so in the interim I got this stuff. I will still get a set of locking tuners for the ease of string changes, but at this point they're really not needed for keeping me in tune. Added a little sustain too (seems like it did anyway).

          Comments about Big Bends Nut Sauce Tuning Lubricant:

          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.

          you would not beleive how well my ibanez artcore af75 reacted to a little bit of Nut Sauce. keeps it in tune as if i had gotten whole new tuners. beware though, Nut Sauce stains linnins and sofas, so be careful with it.

          Comments about Big Bends Nut Sauce Tuning Lubricant:

          I took a chance with the product and not an expensive test. I break strings fairly often, admittedly my attack is aggressive. I gave this stuff a try to try and minimize breakage. Nominal affect. If you use a fat pick and often attack your strings, my hunch is this stuff won't work for you. Used on PRS, Strats, and LPs. I am a bit circumspect about how much promotion this product gets also.

          Comments about Big Bends Nut Sauce Tuning Lubricant:

          If your'e not using a string lubricant on your guitars, I'll almost guarantee that you are (or will be) having tuning and/or string breakage issues. This stuff seems expensive but you use so little at each application that it is cheap peace of mind in the long run. For you acoustic folks, using this stuff on the nut and saddle, along with some good strings (I love the Elixers), you will be amazed at how long your guitar strings act like new after a string change. Mine go for months sometimes. I never have tuning issues and it is a VERY rare occasion to break a string, even those pesky acoustic G-strings.

              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!

                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.

                Being a silicone based product Big Bends Nut Sauce could be harmful to your finish. Be extra careful not to get any Nut Sauce on your finish. Especially Vintage Guitars. Otherwise it does reduce friction like a good lead pencil will.

                im really good at turning a few wrenches and modifying guitars. a while ago a friend asked me to help her with a guitar that wouldnt stay in tune. i tried this stuff out before i tried some other solutions i heard about. works beautifuly. only reason i didnt give it all 5's is becouse as someone mentioned it contains silicone wich is not good for finishes, but if you use it right it should never be a problem (tiny amount on nut and bridge saddles. and just to clear up the myths about "lead" from pencils. its not true. pencils are made from graphite thats why it works, though you get much better results usind dry graphite powder (sold as a lubricant at some hardware stores or craft stores next to pinewood derby cars)other graphite based lubes may work but in my opinion your better off with this stuff its less messy and much easier.

                          Great product. I haven't gone without it since I started using it and I doubt I ever will. Does a great job of preventing strings from binding at the nut which helps with tuning stability/trem use. I've also had significantly less string breakage since I started using this product. Seems pricey, but it's really not when you consider how long a tube lasts. My last tube lasted my somewhere between 4-5 years, and I change my strings 1-2 times per month. Sure, there are other product you can buy for lining your saddles/nut, but in my opinion, the convenience and ease of use make this a no-brainer.

                              I used this to increase tuning stability on a Tele with a Vibramate TEV and Bigsby B5. After a few days things seem to settling in. As I have never used another string lubricant, I have nothing to compare this to. It is thick, stays put well, and is slick, so I am assuming that it will do what it advertises.
