Various string saddles and top nuts, all shapes and sizes some of which are from the industry leader Graph Tech. For improved tone and to prevent string breakage Graph Tech are being used as standard my many guitar manufacturers. Their pre-slotted nut range will help to improve tuning stability and overall tone on your guitar or bass and each guitar nut and bridge saddle has detailed measurements listed to ensure a good fit on your instrument.
Most of the Graph Tech replacement top nuts that we sell are shaped to fit the intended instrument, however please note that you may find that some sand paper is required to reduce the overall size of the nut so that it fits perfectly into the slot in the neck. To cut the string slots in the nut, you will need a set of our nut files, or some needle files. Even the pre-slotted nuts may require the slots to be made a little deeper if the strings sit too far away from the fingerboard. Again, these processes are normal when it comes to fitting a new nut. Not only are there so many neck variations on the market to cater for but also each and every player has their own set-up preferences. Therefore it is best to fine tune the nut for the instrument that it is going on to. If you are unsure about carrying the workout yourself, then we suggest getting the work carried out by a qualified guitar luthier.
