Speeds nut slotting jobs! This simple little tool will save you a lot of time when you're filing a nut slot.

Just slip it under the string in front of the nut, and quickly lever the string up and out of your way. There's no need to loosen the string, and you can quickly reseat it to check the slot depth frequently as you work, without tedious retunings.

The String Lifter fits any string up to .062". Our thanks to luthier Rolfe Gerhardt for this clever idea.

You can't beat the price and the amount of work and time and frustration it will save you when adjusting nuts.

What a great little devise. Makes the final nut slot cutting a breeze. Works like a charm.

The Verdict is Still Out

Well not really. Guilty was the charge. This little contraption failed on a number of accounts. the handle is too small to control the spring tension of the lifted guitar string. And the pressure of the plastic "barrel" that the fretboard had to endure while the string was lifted up and out of the way left noticeable dings in the both ebony and rosewood fingerboards.

I should have bought the string lifter long ago. What an incredible time-saver.

The string lifter is a simple and helpful tool. It will save your finger nails and makes it very easy to lift up the string. You can leave the string in tune, just grab it and place it on the nut between two slots while you are working. Easy and simple, I love it.

I have used this amazing tool countless times to cut the bridge nut for proper string height and intonation! It's the best!
