I thought that this was replacement for a standard nut. The qaulity and the craftmanship is flawless and the sound from the brass nut is pretty cool. It ads sustain and the instrument gets a more bell-like tone.
I bought this for a restoration of a old Hamer Special and needed a new nut because the old one was long gone. Since I don't have the proper tools or skill to make a nut from scratch I choose to try this one out because you can easily change the height of each string with a small screwdriver.
I works ok for trying the guitar out and for light playing but if you play to hard the string will drop out of the very shallow slot and get out of position and out of tune.
To avoid this you have to file the slots deeper and for that you need the proper tools.
It´s a great thing to play around with but you'll probably do better with a standard nut from bone or solid brass.
If you have an instrument with no angle over the nut it will probably work just fine.
This nut is just great. Makes open strings tone almost identical to fretted ones. You can adjust the action at the nut really easily. No sustain loss whatsoever. Sounds a brighter then the Tusq XL, though. Will definitely more of these for other guitars.
