Grover "Perfect" Guitar Extension Nut

About This Item

Designed to fit over a standard 6-string nut, the Grover Perfect Guitar Nut raises the strings to allow playing with a steel bar, Dobro-style.

Will not throw your guitar out of tune. Grover improved intonation by adding a fixed leading edge and graduated string slots to their extender nut. The result is more accurate notation when playing with a slide.

A simple, reversible mod. Explore the lap steel without making an investment in a new instrument. There's no need to modify your instrument or install a new nut; simply remove it for standard playing.

The Grover Perfect Guitar Nut is made of unplated zinc, and is notched for 1-5/8" (41.28mm) string spread.

Cheaper than buying another guitar

Bought this to try out playing lap steel before investing hundreds in a new guitar. Works. Glad I tried it because lap steel turns out to be rather complicated. Ha! May have saved me a lot of money!

Works Great!

I have a small body Epiphone that I didn't use much. I was able to loosen up the strings and put the extension nut right on top of the existing one. It's a really cost effective and reversible way to play the dobro.

Handy Little Tool

This floating nut is a perfect accessory and tool for altering the height of the nut. If you want to raise the action on you guitar but don't want to make permanent alterations to the nut, this accessory will give you the change you desire minus the expense of a luthier. Or, if you want to use your guitar for slide, a quick change of strings and this accessory will give you the action height to raise the strings high enough so your slide isn't clacking over your frets donating an unwanted sound.

Kirk's The Perfect nut review

It's a good , solid piece. Being a beginning slide player I enjoy it's user friendliness , and the fact that it keeps my Resonator guitar in tune. I take it off , and put it on regularly. I like it attached mostly. Glad I purchased it.

Handy Accessory

Sounds great on a slide guitar. As mentioned in previous reviews, the dimensions most likely will be larger than your current guitar neck. Also, the slot for the nut was a little oversized in my case, so it had a little bit of slop to it until the strings were tightened down. Regardless, once strung up, it performs perfectly and sounds exactly as hoped.

Really Works

By

Verified Buyer


The Perfect nut was installed on a 53 + years old German arched top guitar that had multiple problems. After repairing the worst problem, I was quite pleased with the result. New problem. The pick-up won't fit between the strings and the arched top. The guitar plays fine with out the pup, Then I read about the Grover "Perfect" nut. It was super easy to install and really works with a zero fret. You can remove it or replace in 5-7 minutes.

Grover Extension Nut

Happy to report that this extension nut works and functions great.
I bought this nut to convert my roundneck reso to squareneck style playing. I will say that it rests mainly on the original nut, barely touching the fretboard and headstock of my guitar. Also, the string spacing is a tad wider than before--but that doesn't matter because I'm not even touching the frets.
Very pleased overall.
