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.

perfect tool !!!

By

Verified Buyer


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.

Dandy!

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!

It works!

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.
