  1. I have to believe I am not the only one experiencing this but I cannot seem to locate another thread on this topic so I thought I was start my own. It seems obvious that the D,G, B & E strings don't have enough angle breakage behind the nut to stop string ringing (and I don't mean the musical way, I mean the annoying way) so I am not sure why the headstock is not angled more or it doesn't come installed with string tension trees. In fact the E string is damn near parallel to the bridge from the tuning post across the entire length of fretboard which make this have a lot of tension. I have checked the neck with a notched straight edge and verified the proper relief using Fender strat specs (because I couldn't find any for the Variax) and everything is maintained properly. I even verify the fingerboard radius and ensure it was reflected within the bridge saddle heights so as far as I can determine this guitar is setup properly. I have therefore decided to install after-market string tension trees. Have anyone else experienced this? Did you use string tension trees or try to shim the neck? Just curious for any lessons learned on addressing this issue. Thanks
