About This Item

The right gauges for cutting and shaping string slots on acoustic guitars. Six files in each set.

Our tempered edge-cut nut files produce round-bottom slots for nuts and saddles. Ensure your strings seat properly in the nut without buzzing!

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.

Exactly as expected. StewMac provided unbelievable service when my original order was not delivered in a timely fashion due to the Canadian Postal strike. StewMac fixed the problem by send another order out via courier. My only cost was the Duty. Cheers to a company willing to go the extra.

Used to make final adjustment to each string slot with respect to string diameter. Adjustment involved fret height with respect to fret board and string action height.

0884 nut file set

By

I already had at least a dozen nut files of various types and ages (some broken). I felt like I finally needed a new set, especially for acoustic guitar work which is the majority of what I do in the shop. I wanted more precision gauges and nice new sharp files. That is exactly what I got. I built a new nut for one of my own guitars right away and it is perfect! Great new files...

Now this is a set of nut files!

Ok, wrote a mediocre review for the .010 file individually but this set is awesome! Teeth are durable, files are rigid, and easy to clean. May buy a couple more individual files but this set makes nut filing super easy!I might even sew a roll for all the available sizes to keep them organized. No worrying if I have the right size turned up (as on dual sided files). This is the best way for me to work. Cuts nicely on both bone and TUSQ style nuts. Although I notice it says acoustic guitar... I bought the electric guitar small set. Which is why I may buy more files to accommodate larger string diameters.

The files are of good material and shave very fast, use caution when filing. My repair went very well.

Have not used these yet but will need them when I change my nut.

I like to do my own work on my guitars because then I know exactly what has been done. These will come in handy when I change my nuts. They appear to be of high quality.
