12-hole tie block tutorial
I now use a 12-hole tie block as standard on my guitars (unless specifically requested otherwise). The 12-hole tie block gives a more consistent, and greater break angle for the strings over the saddle, and also looks neater.
It is important, however, to know how to tie the strings correctly (especially the trebles), to avoid any painful (for the guitar) accidents.
The system described here works very well on my guitars, but cannot be guaranteed to be suitable for all 12-hole tie blocks, due to possible variations in the size and position of the holes, and the height of the tie block itself.
Please read through ALL of the instructions before starting.
