Grover "Perfect" Guitar Extension Nut

About This Item

Designed to fit over a standard 6-string nut, the Grover Perfect Guitar Nut raises the strings to allow playing with a steel bar, Dobro-style.

Will not throw your guitar out of tune. Grover improved intonation by adding a fixed leading edge and graduated string slots to their extender nut. The result is more accurate notation when playing with a slide.

A simple, reversible mod. Explore the lap steel without making an investment in a new instrument. There's no need to modify your instrument or install a new nut; simply remove it for standard playing.

The Grover Perfect Guitar Nut is made of unplated zinc, and is notched for 1-5/8" (41.28mm) string spread.

This raises the strings up so you can play slide on your guitar but it's pretty wide. Check the width of your neck and your string spacing before you buy.

I bought the Grover "Perfect" Guitar Extension Nut in order to play lap slide guitar on my National M1 Tricone. I have the guitar tuned to open D and am quite happy with the results. As a side note, I asked a luthier (and former builder for National ResoPhonic) whether use of an extension nut would put too much strain on the neck and he assured me that it would not.

The Grover Guitar Extension Nut is so much better than the "other" bent piece of metal style, I can hardly believe. Intonation is finally right!!!!!

Cheaper than buying another guitar

Bought this to try out playing lap steel before investing hundreds in a new guitar. Works. Glad I tried it because lap steel turns out to be rather complicated. Ha! May have saved me a lot of money!

I have a small body Epiphone that I didn't use much. I was able to loosen up the strings and put the extension nut right on top of the existing one. It's a really cost effective and reversible way to play the dobro.

Handy Little Tool

This floating nut is a perfect accessory and tool for altering the height of the nut. If you want to raise the action on you guitar but don't want to make permanent alterations to the nut, this accessory will give you the change you desire minus the expense of a luthier. Or, if you want to use your guitar for slide, a quick change of strings and this accessory will give you the action height to raise the strings high enough so your slide isn't clacking over your frets donating an unwanted sound.

It's a good , solid piece. Being a beginning slide player I enjoy it's user friendliness , and the fact that it keeps my Resonator guitar in tune. I take it off , and put it on regularly. I like it attached mostly. Glad I purchased it.
