About This Item

Speeds nut slotting jobs! This simple little tool will save you a lot of time when you're filing a nut slot.

Just slip it under the string in front of the nut, and quickly lever the string up and out of your way. There's no need to loosen the string, and you can quickly reseat it to check the slot depth frequently as you work, without tedious retunings.

The String Lifter fits any string up to .062". Our thanks to luthier Rolfe Gerhardt for this clever idea.

How did I survive without this?

String Lifter easy

By

Verified Buyer


String Lifter worked well to lift strings while working on the slots in the nut of a guitar. I slacked off the tension slightly (one revolution of the tuning key) and easily lifted the string out and over to the side out of the business locale of filing the edges of the slot. This was to facilitate less stick/slip friction in that slot while tuning each string.

Fingernail Saver

Verified Buyer


Had one before and lost it so needed to get another. For the minimal price what a great addition to the shop. Makes nut adjustments and set ups that much quicker and saves me from getting an E string right up under that fingernail. OUCH!

Such a Valuable Little Tool

By

Had a couple of strings sticking a little and wanted to lube the Nut. This little guy let me pick up the string and clean and lube the Nut without loosening or taking off the strings. A real time saver. Why didn't I buy one sooner?

Nice Tool for Strings Under Tension

By

Verified Buyer


Good little tool for moving strings under tension out of the way when working on the nut and other neck parts. It's fairly small so be careful where you lay it on your bench or it is liable to wind up lost amongst the bigger tools!

good little tool

It's a good little tool that can be helpful - unless you lose it like I did. It's small, easy to overlook, and probably somewhere on my bench right now.

Great little tool

By

Verified Buyer


This little tool does an amazing job of moving strings that are at tension in oder to do nut filing or local fret work. The only thing to be aware of is that it will leave marks on the fretboard if you dont have something under it. It moves smoothly and saves my fingers from bearing the tension that in some cases has to be detuned and retuned after each step. It is a small tool so buy a couple in case you are like me and forget where I set it down, or have lots off tools in play at once......and who doesn't.
