    So someone was telling me if I order the correct string-post-height Hipshot tuning machines I wont need string trees for my warmoth build.

    Is this true?

    Hipshot offers three heights: 19mm, 20mm, and 21mm

    I feel like i could just order six of the 19mm... right?

    Thanks in advance :) this is my first "build"

    If it's a straight headstock, the standard staggered post set is what you want. Shortest post is installed the furthest from the nut.
