    theres a really small white part on my guitar which is circular in shape and is located inbetween the turning knob thing and the guitar it self on every string. This part snapped on one of the strings and i need to get s replacement. I was wondering what the piece is called and is it easy to replace it. Sorry for the dodgy description but im a guitar beginner

    maybe this:

    will help you tell us which bit is broken...

    If not, then tell us the make/model of the guitar and we can find a pic of that

    I'm going to guess you're on about the little washer type thing that re-distributes the load of the pin the string gets wound around. Easiest if you take the guitar to your local luthier - not only will he know what it is, he'll know exactly how best to fix it.

    You won't get that part anyway... you'll probably have to buy a set for the head. Is it like a little gear?
