Application of Squirrely's Nut Lube is pretty simple: rub a small amount of it onto any friction point on your guitar. That includes the nut, the bridge saddles and the tremolo pivot.

Please note that Squirrely's Nut Lube does contain graphite and as such, it will darken anything it comes in contact with. Care should be taken to make sure you only get it where you need it. Placing a cloth or some tape in areas around the section you will be working with is recommended if you are concerned about such things. Also, a pencil eraser works well to remove nut lube from the nut surface if necessary.

Be sure to check out the "Guitar Restring" tab above before applying the nut lube. If your strings aren't stretched correctly first, there is no amount of lube that will help your tuning issues!

pre app
This small bottle of Squirrely's Nut Lube will seem to last a lifetime if used sparingly.

 

pre app
Open bottle and place applicator into the nut lube just deep enough to get lube on about half of the green area of the applicator tip.

app
It is best to apply when you are replacing strings, but if you already have new strings, just lift the string out of the nut slot as illustrated above.

 

app
Using an applicator coated with the nut lube, rub the tip back and forth in the open nut slot a few times to apply the lube.

post app
If you have applied correctly, the nut slot will have a gray hue as shown above. If your nut is black plastic or graphite you will probably not be able to see this. Just rest assured if you rub it back and forth in the slot a few times, it's in there!

 

pre app
After you have applied the lube to all nut slots, make sure to clean the area. I suggest using canned air to blow the excess off or be proactive and cover areas you don't want lubed before starting.

If the nut lube is not making any difference and you are still having tuning issues, take a look at your nut slots. There could be some burs that need to be sanded or filed away or you could have tuners that are worn out and need replacement. The lube is meant to make a smooth surface even slicker, not correct for a badly cut nut slot.

If you happen to loose or misplace your applicator, you can obtain one at about any drug store. It is simply a Gum brand soft tooth pick and is available in a 40-pack. It also works pretty great as a tooth pick (just not after dipping it in the nut lube!).

Don't forget to put some lube on your bridge at the point where the strings meet the saddles too. Any point of friction can cause problems.

Application of Squirrely's Nut Lube NO/C is pretty simple: place a small amount of it onto any friction point on your guitar. That includes the nut, string trees, bridge saddles and the tremolo pivot.

Please note that Squirrely's Nut Lube does contain lubricants that should not come in contact with your guitars finish. Also note that this being a liquid lubricant, it will soak into porous materials such as bone.

Be sure to check out the "Guitar Restring" tab above before applying the nut lube. If your strings aren't stretched correctly, there is no amount of lube that will help your tuning issues!

Syringe
This syringe of Squirrely's Nut Lube NO/C will last a long time if used sparingly and taking care to properly dispense.

 

hold
It is HIGHLY recommended to hold the syringe like illustrated above. This method provides the greatest control. Remove tip cover before using.

loosen
It is recommended to apply NO/C with all nut slots empty. This will provide the easiest and quickest application. If applying with strings on the instrument, loosening string tension first is recommended.

 

stoff
Here I have released tension on the strings and moved them aside for the application process.


drop
Should you wish to apply NO/C one string at a time, be aware that pressure created inside the syringe upon pushing the plunger will continue to push the lube out.

 

pull
It is recommended to pull back on the plunger slightly to release pressure and stop product flow. I recommend doing this between each string if applying one at a time and anytime you wish to stop the flow of lubricant.

apply2
Place a very small amount in the the first nut slot.


 

slots
If applying with all strings out of the slot, you may easily continue placing lubricant into all remaining nut slots before releasing pressure as outlined above.

clean2
After application, be sure to clean off any excess that may have been applied outside of the nut slots.

 

excess
Replace strings and tune your instrument.

clean
Wipe off the excess if you wish.

 

ready
You are now ready to play!

Application two

Remove all components from the electronics cavity. It is not necessary to completely unwire and remove, just make sure that all surfaces of the cavity are accessible. If cavity is bare wood it is HIGHLY recommended to PRIME the surface first. This will enable you to coat the surface with Hum Bugger easier.

 

Apply Hum Bugger™ paint generously, making certain that the lip of the control cavity is coated. This will ensure a connection to the electronics control cavity cover to enable a complete Faraday Cage effect.


Application three

 

Application four

If the electronics control cavity cover is not already covered in aluminum or copper, it will also need to be painted on the side of the cover that will be facing the inside of the control cavity. Let Hum Bugger™ dry for 24 hours.

 

A second coat may be necessary for complete coverage. Replace all electronic controls. If the wiring is grounded properly, the controls will be grounded to the cavity at the point where the controls are mounted to the cavity.

This is the method I currently like to use because I feel it really locks the string in place. View the video below to see how to tune/stretch your strings properly after a restring. Stretch your strings regardless of how you string your guitar.


Believe it or not, this method also works pretty well. If you use either of these methods I am certain you will have a lot better luck keeping your guitar in tune than by using the old method of just putting your string in the tuning peg and turn. Though there is nothing wrong with doing it this way, you depend on getting the correct number of turns to keep the string in place. Since too many turns is just as bad as not enough, why risk it: use one of these methods to keep your guitar in tune and yourself happy.  Don't forget to add the Squirrely's!



Go to your local hardware store and purchase a can of "Plasti Dip". You can order it online too. You can even buy it clear and add different colors to it if you are that anal about it! :) All we have locally is black and that works great for me.

 



Take your favorite guitar pick of choice (the one above is my favorite). It really doesn't matter the type you use. You will not harm the pick. If you mess up, simply wipe the stuff off. If it has already dried, it can be torn off pretty easily and redone.



I put the pick on the end of a "test lead". Then dip the pick slowly into the "Plasti Dip" until it covers the area you would like to create your grip surface on and slowly pull out of the dip. Note that at the point the pick leaves the dip you will create a small nipple. The slower you release the pick from the dip, the smaller the nipple.

 

 



Hang and let dry for a few hours before using. Congratulations! You have just turned your favorite pick into a sure grip monster!

If the dip is too thick and hard to work with, thin it out with a little Naptha (also available at the hardware store). I like to thin mine out quite a bit and as you can see, I transfer the stuff to a more air tight container as the container it comes in dries the stuff out quickly.
