good, better and best
Daniele T. 25.03.2016
My best T-Style guitar is a custom build, with specs made to my own taste, hence my very own dream guitar, which plays, sounds and feels like I always wanted a guitar to.

I bought the Göldo Zero Glide (Tele) nut kit out of curiosity, and kept it there for months before finding the courage to try put it on.

Then, when I felt bold enough to risk, I've set to spend a couple of hours for watching videos, figuring out what makeshift tools I could find around the house, and actually do the job in one single gulp.

I had some serious expectations, always found the zero-fret concept absolutely superior in engineering terms, but I was skeptical the Zero Glide take on the subject was really as good as the real thing.

Well... it is. It's all the best a zero-fret fingerboard can deliver, without having to order it custom made, and without renouncing the neck and fingerboard you already have and love.

I've installed it myself with the most basic DIY tools, and my dream guitar improved beyond what I may ever expect: intonation in the first three positions, attack, sustain, clarity, structure, consistency of tone between open- and fretted strings... it's all there as promised, in hardly two hours in total, spent between training, tooling and working on it.

Even the one thing that did not look proper to my eye, the slots in the bone nut, which I found out being genuine bone, after a few minutes' swipe with a standard nail polishing pad now looks perfectly smooth, polished and without hard edges.

I'll soon install one in all my other instruments... it's too good to be true, and shall I want to sell any instrument to someone who prefers less intonation, less attack, less sustain, less clarity, less structure... I'll simply replace the Zero Glide with the original nut in a couple of minutes!

What's not to love in this? Hopefully it'll sell millions of pieces, so that, possibly, one day more and more manufacturers will be offering more and more of their own stock guitars with zero fret.

OK but the first partially broke whilst fitting it.

This seemed to work fine but I can't really tell the difference in open-chord tuning and I have now re-fitted the original nut.

It was a but fiddly to install and I ended up breaking-off part of the nut (glued with CA).

Not sure!

Great idea, almost perfect
Anonymous 13.09.2016
I like taking cheap guitars and seeing how good they can get with a little TLC and minor (and sometimes not so minor) modifications. I bought the Harley Benton ST-70 Black Paisley, and thought it a good opportunity to try the Zero-Glide nut,
After levelling, crowning and polishing the frets, the nut was fairly straight forward to fit, and after trying the various zero-fret sizes I ended up with the highest one which seemed perfect, unsurprisingly as the frets were new and unworn.

In use, the tuning stays well in, even after a fair bit of whammy use, and the open chords sound great to my ears, acoustically and through an amp.

The only one thing I have noticed (and hence not 5 stars given) is that when bending, the strings do move sideways suddenly (but only slightly) on the zero-fret which you can hear when playing quietly through an amp, but more importantly when playing at 'normal' levels, I can't hear the strings acoustically, but I can feel the string tweak slightly as I bend.
It's not too bad when you get used to it. I may try some nut sauce to see if that helps, but it's something to be aware of. I would say on an acoustic this would be a problem, for me at least.

excellent product
Wheres Waldo 31.05.2019
I found it easy to fit ,no work necessary on the nut slot you just have to sand away any excess size wise on the actual nut supplied as per the instructions on the packaging, a little at a time and keep testing to fit the fret down the side of the nut when the fret fits snug use one of the frets supplied .make sure you sand the nut on the opposite side of the grooves in the nut as per instructions supplied.
