I use a Strat and have removed the tremelo arm as I dont require it but I use plenty of string bending. This screws up the tuning half way through. I am getting a new custom made Les Paul for which I thought I will just use the nut lock but the guitar maker told me that Nut Lock cannot be put on the guitar without a Floyd Rose. I couldn't understand the reason behind it. Any ideas why nut lock cannot be done for a Les Paul. I have tried lot of stringing suggestions to keep the guitar in tune but when I do a lot of bends the tuning just gets kappoot. Any good + less expensive ideas to hold my guitar in tune.
