Bill Edwards Locking Nut

Bill Edwards Locking Nut

Our patented locking nuts clamp securely every time - eliminating detuning due to the strings slipping or sticking in the nut slots. They have three distinct advantages over wrench-activated string locks: First, they do not require a separate tool to lock or unlock the strings. Second, and equally important, they do not detune the strings when clamped or unclamped. Third, your primary tuners, which were previously made unavailable by the locking and detuning associated with the hex screws, are no longer inaccessible! They're just a quick flip away. The BELN baseplate is recommended for guitars with scalloped headstocks, like Strats and Teles, where there is sufficient material for routing when being retrofit. It is also a direct retrofit for the standard FR baseplate (R2-R5).

Behind the Nut String Lock

Behind Nut String Lock

Our BNSL String Lock is designed to go on tilt-back headstocks, like Les Pauls. It has all the same advantages of the original Bill Edwards Locking Nut for scalloped headstocks, and the baseplate is specially designed for tilt-back headstocks, which should never be routed to retrofit a locking nut baseplate. The shape of the standard tilt-back headstock together with the channel for the truss rod adjuster, exacerbates an unnoticed but substantial weakness in an area which is already fragile. Our BNSL requires no routing to install.

Floyd Nut Conversion Kit

"Floyd" Nut Conversion Kit

This incredible new design allows you to convert your troublesome wrench-style locking nut into a trouble-free Bill Edwards Locking Nut by replacing only certain parts of the existing device. You keep the original baseplate and string bar, and replace the lock blocks and hex cap screws with our upgrade parts. The FNCK can be installed in just minutes without even removing the strings!

Testimonials

Thank you so much for understanding the guitar in the manner you do and for figuring out how to impart that information back to all of us aspiring guitar players. I have had a guitar in the house for the past 30 years and play it often. After starting with your book one a couple of months ago, I can honestly say that I have learned more in the past 2 months than in all of the previous 30 years. Amazing! The thought that occurs to me is that your system is the best way for one to truly BE a guitarist instead of just being a guitar student for the rest of one's life. I am actually making and creating original music with just the tools you have shown me in these past 2 months. Again, many thanks for all of this new-found musical joy.

Understanding guitar and the fun of trying to play it have been riddles that I've tried to solve for years. Fretboard Logic is the best resource that I've discovered/uprooted during that long period of digging here and there and all over. Guitar-Music-Interface. What a concept. I wish you continued success in the modest endeavour of changing the world.

Dear Mr. Edwards, You are a genius. Your Fretboard Logic books and videos are beautiful. I marvel at the way you can present such an immense amount of material in such a concise format. I admire your ability to be so economic with your words, yet so complete with your information. This trait is so rare in all of literature, and even rarer in musical teaching. Absolutely amazing. I hope you are a religious man, Mr. Edwards, because I am sure there is a seat waiting for you in heaven as a reward for your sharing such valuable information at such an affordable cost that it is accessible by almost every person who desires to learn it. My eternal thanks.

It's hard to describe the value of Fretboard Logic. So many musicians are jaded toward instruction books. If only a copy of Volume I was stapled to every guitar, most players would save themselves a tremendous amount of frustration and confusion. Not many things jolt you into an epiphany, but your books continue to do it over and over again. Just want to thank you very much for opening up the doors that lead from intermediate to advanced.
