Slide Guitar Extension Nut

About This Item

Designed to fit over a standard 6-string nut, this extender raises the strings to allow playing with a steel bar, Dobro-style.

There's no need to modify the instrument or install a new nut; simply remove it for standard playing. The extension nut is made of nickel-plated steel, and is notched for 1-23/32" (43.66mm) string spread.

Coool

By
(Customer's Reviews)


I received it.
FIx it on my guitar and... at the very end for getting the best intuation.
Used it for concerts / gigs.
Excellent.
Maybe different models with different spaces for electric or acoustic and it would be perfect.
But already pretty cool.
I'll do it again

Know What You're Getting

The "Slide Guitar Extension Nut" presents a bad case of convenience to the manufacturer (only having to make one size) disguised as a convenience to the customer (pretending one size fits all). This thing is not very versatile. With an outer string spread of 1.75", it's made for a wide guitar neck so if yours is only average, the outer strings will be suspended off to the sides of the overall width of the neck. That's not insurmountable but it's also not something every budding slide player wants to tolerate.

Also, if your slide playing includes any fretting at all, FORGET IT. While it certainly raises them well away from the neck, the strings are lifted to a height that makes trying to fret them pull them off pitch well before you reach the fret... and there is NO adjusting it. I used one on a wide neck 12 string strung for six. A neck designed for the tension of 12 strings easily takes the tension of a heavy gauge set in a raised open tuning. The "Slide Guitar Extension Nut" is ideal for such an application (if you don't want to even try any fretting) but I doubt Stewey Mac's sells very many of them.

Great for lap style guitarists

Want to play seamless lap style guitar? Interested in exploring it? These nut extenders are an inexpensive answer. They work remarkably well and are inexpensive to boot. Give it a try.

Man, what a great little gadget. Just slacken the strings, slip it over the nut, tune to open G or whatever and go. A nice way to re-purpose an out of use guitar(s). Brilliant!

Just like that...

Just like that I have a nice slide guitar. The interesting thing was seeing the look on my friends face when I showed him the little deal that does the business. A frown, a puzzled look and then the lights go on. Nice and easy. Thank you

More fun than a...

...one-legged man in a butt-kicking contest! This is super cool for playing around with open tunings and getting that cool Dobro-esque tone out of sliding. You can really dig in to the strings with your slide with no worries about fretting out. And when you're done playing slide, it takes about a minute to have a normal guitar again. Makes an awesome gift for your friends and family who like to play!
