Big Bends LLC was founded in 2001.
In an “obsessive quest” to keep his guitars in tune, Jeff Massey (company founder) realized “friction” was the cause of virtually ALL tuning (pitch drift) problems. He found going out of tune while playing the guitar (or any stringed instrument) is almost always the direct consequence of “friction” acting upon the “fulcrum/pivot points of the floating bridge and the string bearing surfaces of the bridge, nut and string guides.
After 10 years of experiments and improvements in both lubricants and applicators, the Nut Sauce Filled Groove Luber, guitar tuning lubricant, was created. Today, Big Bends is still on a quest to bring the “Tech in a Tube” to every stringed instrument Artist, Builder and Repair Tech who has ever struggled with getting and staying in tune and breaking strings.
