As the photos show, there is a little nub that helps to keep the tree aligned properly. If you don't like the idea of drilling a little hole in your headstock for this nub (I didn't), then simply grind or file the nub off. The upward pressure of the strings on either side of the center of the tree keep it aligned without the nub. I did this on my MIM Strats. Much better then the stock "butterfly" trees. Strings slide much better under the smooth, round branches of these trees. They tended to get stuck and stick under the butterfly trees. Tuning is easier and strings won't beak so easily. Highly recommended.

I like many other people expected these to be rollers, while they are not. Fender and/or Musician's Friend should probably have that stated clearly somewhere.
When I got mine, the top side of the "rollers" looked great, but the underside that would actually come into contact with the strings was rough, unfinished and would clearly damage my strings if I used them. Maybe I just got a bad set, but I intend to see if I can return them for either my money back or a new and functional set.
It also took several months for Fender to ship them to my local music store.

      Comments about Fender American Standard String Guide (2):

      A few years ago I purchased a Mexican Fender dual humbucker Blacktop. Of all ten guitars that I own, including expensive ones, this is my favorite. The only minor problem was that the string tree lacked its spacer. Actually that was not a problem but it bothered me. So I bought the roller string tree. It has a nub on the bottom as it normally sits in a hole on the American series. All I had to do was break off the nub and file it flat. As I had previously installed straplocks and locking tuners the guitar looks a little like an American now.

          These string trees look great and greatly improve tuning on Fender Stratocaster or Telecasters with tremolo systems. These trees are much less friction on the strings.

                Comments about Fender American Standard String Guide (2):

                They worked very well for me. I thought they were machined nicely. I thought the mounting screws were a bit to short. I think on my next install I will use the stock string tree screws from the ones I am replacing; they seem a little bit more substantial. I feel the AS String Guides look really cool and they do not appear bulky after being installed as some have mentioned.

                Comments about Fender American Standard String Guide (2):

                Most American Fenders come with this type string guide, and I absolutely love the looks of them. So I bought a set for my Mexican Stratocaster, and my Indonesian Squire Standard Telecaster (which both came with rams horn string guides).
                They all do the same thing, I just prefer the looks of the American Standard T.

                Be forewarned though; these string guides come with a nud/nipple on the bottom (in front of the screw hole) to hold the base in place, and not let the guide twist or turn. So, drilling WILL be required on a non-American guitar. And if you're as obsessive as I am...it is tricky and time consuming to assure the string guide is perfectly straight once in place with the newly drilled nub/nipple hole.
                And to install two of them on a guitar that formally had one...take your time, and good luck. Will look fantastic when your done, so the work (to me) is every bit worth it.

                    I eliminated the nub which made installation and alignment easier. Guitar seems to tune better.

                      These are excellent. Great fender quality. Much better than the old type that look like they were cut from tin and hinder tunning and tremolo action.
