A StewMac exclusive! These versatile "half shims" allow more precise height adjustment of Floyd Rose® locking nuts than ever before.

They're specially sized for raising the string height at the bass and treble sides independently, with clearance for the mounting screws and for "bullet" truss rod adjustment. No woodworking! Made of bronze, so they won't dampen the instrument's tone or sustain.

Set of 8 includes two each of .004", .006", .016" and .024" thicknesses (.10mm, .15mm, .41mm and .61mm). A must for more accurate guitar setups!

These shims fit most Floyd Rose style locking nuts, including original Floyd Rose, Schaller, Ibanez Edge, Charvel/Jackson, and our Golden Age Locking Tremolo.

A small price to pay for perfect action.

No need to settle for what Floyd gave you. Shim that nut and feel the difference.

Locking nut adjustment perfect!

Replaced my locking nut. Kahler for Kahler and the new one was shallower. Bought the shims and after 2 tries I have better action than ever and I used a black permanent marker to paint the edges that show and you cant even tell they are there. One on the treble side and a combo of 2 on the bass side and it is perfect.

Quality products.

Most will agree that the shims' thicknesses are extremely critical, and they can never be too thin. These locking nut shims are a perfectly sized selection in an affordable package to obtain the desired results.

Got there in the end

By Bill Palmer from Australia

Stew-Mac fluffed my order initially as only 4 of the 8 shims arrived.

I sent them an email and they promptly replied apologizing and then said they'd ship out another set of 8.

After 6 weeks (I am in Australia), they still had not arrived so I emailed again to which they replied very promptly again and within 2 weeks, the shims arrived.

Sometimes sh*t happens, especially where postage and freight is concerned so no "hard feelings" my end.

The shims are excellent and I needed one for the treble side of my Charvel Batch 8 Wild Card as there was some open string buzz on the high "e" string due to the nut being just a hair too low.

The has solved the problem perfectly. You can't beat the price either.

Accuracy is the thing, and these are accurate, no more sanding down veneer :)

Perfect Floyd Nut Shim

By Angus M. from Flanders, NJ
(Customer's Reviews) Friday, March 04, 2011

These shims are perfect for getting the correct Floyd Rose nut height. The fact that they are small lets you stack the required shims on either side of the nut to get the precise string height. Plus they are metal, which does not diminish string vibration. Great idea!
