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.

It does what it says it does. For under five bucks just add one to your next order, you won't regret it.

Cheap little tool that should last a while. Works as described to lift strings under tension from the nut. Didn't know how often I'd use it but have had it on the bench in use since it showed up.

Great little tool. So simple. Saves on broken nails. Lift the string, ease it to the side, put it back when done. Simples.

I first used this tool whilst making my first guitar on course at the excellent Totnes School of Guitar Making. As soon as I used it I knew it would be one of the first items I would order from Stewmac when setting up my own workshop. Filing nut slots to get the action correct at the first fret would be much more difficult without this simple but effective item. It saves time, prevents accidental damage to your instrument and keeps your nails intact.

The importance of string / fret clearance at the business end of the neck cannot be overstated. This tool combined with nut files makes it easy to get it right
