Gauged Nut Slotting File Set for Bass

About This Item

The right gauges for cutting and shaping string slots on electric bass, in one convenient set.

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.


Save 10% by purchasing the set
StewMac tech advisors specify these sets for bass:

#0887 For 4-string
0.046", 0.065", 0.085", and 0.105"

#0888 For 5-string
0.046", 0.065", 0.085", 0.105", and 0.125"


Just want one? Each file is also sold individually.

Match the file to the string gauge
Choose a file of the same size as the string, or no more than a few thousandths wider. By rocking the file side to side, you can widen the slot to fit a slightly wider string.

Get a better grip on your files!
Our new Nut File Backer makes these files even easier to use. It acts like a spine, stiffening the file for a straighter, more accurate cut—no more slipping and sliding on a slick nut or saddle. We have models for narrow and wide files, giving you complete control.

They work fine and do a nice job.

A quality set of files

Verified Buyer


I had never made this adjustment before so I was a bit skeptical that I could do it without messing it up. These files worked great and I now have a nice low action and no fret buzz. These are highly recommended.

Gauged nut slot files for bass

These worked very well. I've used the nut slot files for guitar for quite some time, and I've found both sets do a great job.

Solid set of files

By

Verified Buyer


I bought the 5 string set and it's genuinely a good set of files. Only complaint I had is the lightest gauge file was slightly curved when it arrived and for the price I feel like that could have been addressed. Of course it's entirely possible that I just got a bad one. Overall very happy with the purchase.

A Real Jewel of a Tool!

By

Verified Buyer


I just love guitar tools, love to hold them and get a feel for what the tool tells me. This set spoke LOUD AND CLEAR! "Come on Rudy, USE ME!"
Talk about smooth cutting, ease of use (no more fingers falling asleep from gripping them 'just right'.
Now, they just fit into my hands and make the job of slotting a breeze! Another man-u-fique job in tool making! I am truly pleased and blessed to be a customer of Stew Mac, best Luthier suppler in the business.

Do Not use them with Tusq

By

Verified Buyer


Great , Smooth and precise on bone material.
Just yesterday I was slotting a 5 strings Tusq blank and I was surprised that file teeth worn very badly before even I finish the slotting job as if I was slotting a sharpening stone.
