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.

Slide guitar extension nut

I've wanted a lap steel for many years now. With the Slide guitar extension nut I took an old guitar and made it into a lap guitar without any mods to the guitar. This is a great product

Extension nut

These work great if you want to give lap style slide a try without buying a square neck. And, Stewmac is always amazing at getting your order out to you really fast!

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... 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!

I'm the guitarist of Dance On Fire, a The Doors tribute band from Mexico City. As you may know, Robby Krieger was one of the first guitarists to use slide on an electric guitar, songs such as Moonlight Drive, Wild Child, End Of The Night, etc. This little piece of metal did a great job, however it could do little damage to your fretboard's finish. Maybe it needs a little piece of rubber in the edges that make contact with wood, in order to prevent scratches.

This bit of kit is now essential in my gig bag. Only down side I can see is that to put the guitar back into standard non slide mode after a song could be tough. cheers stew mac for a great piece of kit

No doubt, it is the best in the market. Very cool. It has one huge advantage over the other NUT in the market. The angled design does not put any pressure on the fretboard and sits nice on top of the existing nut.

You need to compromise on one thing. On few open tunings where you have to go a whole step down on lower strings, the nut moves because of not enough tension to keep it in place. But for Open G,E or Dobro or C6 types, it works like a charm.
