Each chrome-alloy steel file has twin 4" cutting edges. Among our most popular tools, these professional files help you get the job done quickly and correctly.

TIP: A nut file can be rocked back and forth while cutting, to form a slightly wider slot when necessary.

What files do I need?
Choose nut slotting files that are the same size or no more that a few thousands larger than your individual string gauges. A smaller file can also be rocked side-to-side to widen a slot to the desired size. For example, you can cut a .043" slot with a .042" file by moving it around a bit.

Bass Nut Filers

Want a handy tool in your guitar tool chest, these are a must. Great quality and very easy to use. I never realized the nut on all my basses needed to be filed down. A great find!

Nut Slotting Files

I got an unusual request to make a nut for a 5 string bass, strung with a high B, rather than low. I used the black tusq nut and the wonderful nut files. The files cut through like butter. In not time flat, the job was done!

Great quality and durable

Great files. Anyone who's had to make .105 guage or greater with a .060 file is just spoiled when it comes to these guys. Good clean accurate cuts and they will last you just about forever!

Bass Nut Files

I have a P bass that was uncomfortable to play around the first few frets. I took it to the local repair shop and it took them about 2 weeks to get around to looking at it. When I got it back it was an improvement but still not good. I saw a good video on how to set up a P bass so I bought the bass nut files from Stewmac and finished the job off myself. That bass is now a pleasure to play. Something all bass players should have.

Nut slotting files

Great files to have around your shop, I nearly have a full set of them now along with the double edge files. Quality tools from a quality vendor!
