Big Bends Lil Luber 1/2cc Nut Sauce Guitar Nut Groove Lubricant

Nut Sauce will keep you rocking in tune, no matter what. It's easy to apply, and because it's non-toxic and non-corrosive, there's no damage to your guitar.

Big Bends Nut Sauce is the Extreme Tuning Lubricant! Your guitar will remain in tune no matter how hard you bend your strings or yank your whammy bar. With the sauce, you won't have to tune between every song - they guarantee it! Nut Sauce will stop string breakage when applied to bridge or saddles. Nut Sauce stays where you put it; it won't drip or run on the fretboard or headstock. Once you try the sauce, you'll never play without it.

Nut Sauce Regular is the favorite of electric guitar players. It contains graphite and synthetic lubricants. It is completely safe for both you and your instrument. It contains no petroleum products or wax. Your sauce comes ready to use in the Groove-Luber applicator.

How It Works

- Stop the string drag or friction at the nut and string guides.
- Reduce string breakage at the bridge and saddles by reducing friction and wear from the see-saw action of hard playing, especially with a thick pick.

String Breakage

The main cause of string breakage can be summed up in one word - "friction". Most players who break strings seem to have a couple things in common, they use "heavy picks" - whether it's a standard pick, thumb pick or finger pick. They also play hard no matter their style. Playing hard with a heavy pick tends to create a "see-saw" like action that tends to file the string at the point of contact of the bridge or saddles. If the strings go thru the body, there will often be a sharp edge that the string will ride on. This is a read more perfect place for the string to break. Friction is the cause of the breakage, created by the "see-saw" action that most often a thick pick creates.

Reduce Friction

- Smooth any rough surfaces. You can use a dremel tool to reduce the edge that the string rides over when the string exits the body and before it goes to the saddle (like an S.R.V. strat). For the saddles, I use 400 grit sandpaper. Then I use fine polishing compound with a damp Q-tip. Keep in mind, that any sanding or polishing will damage gold or other plating. I recommend having a professional guitar tech do any modifications.
- Running your string thru wire insulation where it travels thru the body, will stop the breakage that is caused by the sharp edges inside the guitar. Make sure you trim the insulation before it touches the saddles. For those players who don't have access to wire insulation, check out my "string sleeves" they are made of pvc plastic and are very durable, yet will not change the sound of your guitar.

I have used BB Nut Sauce on all my guitars for the last couple years now. I apply a tiny dab into each nut slot, on each saddle, on the string tree, everywhere the strings come in contact. It works great. Makes tuning easier. Helps keep things tuned. Reduces all drag you might feel on the string while tuning or playing. Absolutely helps strings last longer as it completely reduces string breakage. If there's one thing in my tool kit that I always keep on hand its Nut Sauce. Absolutely recommend it to anyone. Comes with a mini cotton tip applicator also to make application easier without wasting it. Buy some today. You won't regret it. Also works great adding it to already self lubricating nuts & saddles such as Tusq products.
