The String Retainer Block is an alternative to individual ferrules on string-through guitar bodies.    Instead of drilling 6 individual holes for ferrules, a router is used to create a perfect pocket that the block drops into.  Never deal with misaligned ferrule holes again!  The blocks are made of wenge and available for several bridge types (string spacing).  

Note: This item is the BLOCK ONLY.  The template to route the pocket in the body is available separately.
