This video lesson covers all of the information you'd get if you could train personally with Dan Erlewine in his repair shop. Nut making is bread-and-butter work for the professional shop, and getting it right makes your customers happy. Every bit as important as neck adjustments and fret work, it's a key part of every guitar setup.
The whole process is presented: removing the old nut, making a top-quality replacement nut, and final shaping, polishing and installation.
• Adjusting the neck • Tapping out the nut • Scribing/heating/cutting the finish • Analyzing and preparing the nut slot • Choosing a nut blank • Fitting a nut blank: techniques for Fender, Gibson and Martin • Laying out the string spacing • Lowering the slots • Shaping, sanding and polishing • Gluing the nut • Finishing.
