String Lifter

About This Item

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.

Time saver and Time is MONEY.

This neat tool easily payed for it self the first day I used it. Very durable, I've used to on dozens of guitars and there is zero wear on it. Why put more wear and tear on strings when you can just lift them off the slot without detuning them? It's really inexpensive, I should have bought this a the first time I saw it on stewmac.

This is a great little tool for lifting strings at the nut but hang on to the handle when you use it. If you let go while lifting a string it can fling across the room and get lost. Ask me how I know.

I bought "Guitar Grease", and the string lifter works a lot better than my fingers when the strings are in tune. They don't really go out of tune that much and my fingers definately don't hurt now.

This is one of the few tools I use daily in my shop. Because it is so small it really has a special place on the wall. But today I was looking for something different than a screwdriver to lock the nut on a Taylor output. This was in sight, so I gave it a try :-) Works well !!!

Works pretty good

The only problem is that the string is still under tension - it wants to chip the side of the nut slot, so be careful.

I would have gone five stars here, my only wish would be for a bit of a handlegrip for old fingers like mine.Way safer for fretboards than the kludges I was using before.You may want to buy a few as they are easy to misplace, but at the price it only makes sense!
