First time "nut maker"

By

Verified Buyer


This was my first nut ever - put it on a pre-made neck from Golden Gate (Strat-style neck). You are definitely given enough material - almost too much in my case. Be prepared to file and sand for several hours to get the desired shape/size. I had to re-do my slot spacing as the guide I was following must have been for a child (way to tight for me, and I dont have huge fingers). Anyway, it was fun, and I look forward to playing my hand-made guitar very soon!

Great material

By

Verified Buyer


I am restoring several old Silvertone Guitars and converting them to left handed setup so there were no commercially available nuts that were right. I had never made a nut before so I bought 3 of these. The first nut I made didn't turn out well but I learned what I did wrong. The next 2 nuts I made turned out great, sound great, and really look good on these vintage guitars. I will definitely be buying more in the future.

a matter of preference...

I gave these a try but I found them too soft and with a tendency to bind the strings. It was an experiment worth trying but this material seems better suited for acoustic guitars than vibrato equipped shredding machines.

They work more easily than bone as advertised but the appearance is dull and not very attractive IMO. I tried one just to see, but will be going back to bone nuts in future.

Nut Sizes

These nuts are great... but they are not ideal for us Ukulele builders. We waste much of the material. What we really need is a nut that is 1.5 X 0.25 X 0.375 inches.
