a neat trick
On a tremolo where the strings' ball end is not removed (Parker, Kahler, etc...) there is occasionally an issue where the string consistently unravels at the ball end during use. This is irritating at best and Gary has a nice trick for it, dropping a small bead of solder on the wind prior to stringing up the guitar. This solidifies the spot and eliminates the unraveling.
