Could the Tune Voodoo Skull fix your tuning woes?

This custom design straightens the angle of the D and G strings on a Gibson Les Paul. Tune Voodoo Skull is handmade in Finland and looks great (if you like skulls).

The Tune Voodoo was created by Kimmo Pennanen and provides a neat solution for the problem. As a disclaimer, it only works on Les Pauls that have straight-slotted nuts and will not be effective if used on ones that have angled nut slots.

It uses the same top screw hole that holds the truss rod cover in place and so it does not require any permanent modification to your guitar.
