Gauged Nut Slotting File Set for Classical Guitar

About This Item

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.

Save 10% by purchasing the set
StewMac tech advisors specify this set to match classical guitar string gauges:
#0886 Set of 4
0.028", 0.032", 0.035", and 0.042"

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.

Price was right and the included files matched well to diadarrio classical strings. Quick and efficient.

Great little files for shaping nut string slots. As others have said, "I wish I'd found them years ago!" I also find them very useful to match the string to exit slot from the pin bridge.
