Hey Busted-e :) I didn't want to hijack Pesky's CV/Bullet thread again so I thought I'd leave you a comment here. I lubed the nut and trees on my Bullet with some high-end bicycle chain lube (I used to race road bikes so I have some of this stuff left...it isn't goopy oily stuff...it's wax-based). Anyway, it seems to have done the trick!! Thanks for the tip. I figured if you used chapstick on your guitar, a small bit of chain lube wouldn't hurt mine...haha. Thanks again!
