Göldo ASNUT Slide Saddle
I have been getting into playing acoustic slide guitar recently and really want a proper resonator guitar when I get my playing up to scratch, in the mean time I'm using an old beater acoustic guitar until I improve, (and save some pennies for a National).
The guitar is a little Art & Lutherie cedar dreadnought that has a really low action, great little guitar but the low action makes it less than ideal for slide so I figured I'd try the Göldo ASNUT Slide Saddle as a it looked like a good idea and was considerably easier than fitting a new higher nut especially as this is only a stopgap and will eventually return to "campfire duty".
Unfortunately things didn't really work out, firstly the Göldo ASNUT Slide Saddle raises the string height way more than necessary, it's ridiculously high.
Secondly the Göldo ASNUT Slide Saddle string spacing is very wide, the E strings are off the fretboard completely.
Thirdly even with the string tension when the guitar is tuned the Göldo ASNUT Slide Saddle moves from side to side.
What seemed like a good idea sadly doesn't translate to a usable product.
It's overpriced for wha is a crudely bent and slotted piece of metal but that would be forgivable had it worked, unfortunately it doesn't so I hope Thomann will accept it as a return.
A disappointing product.
