(wow) upgrade for archtop
rbbrnck, 03.04.2021
fits Ibanez AG95 like a glove, and has turned this mid-price archtop into a truly superior, higher-grade instrument, with an intonation that is now spot-on, fully-exact, across the whole fretboard – any string, any fret.
tuning machines now perform significantly smoother, and even with the quite steep offset angle of the guitar's two center strings D and G (due to the styling of the guitar's headstock), the friction's now gone, too, which makes tuning a much faster, simpler, easier process.
the original nut that came with the guitar was definitely its less-worthy part, actually a hastily-cut and unevenly-filed piece (and of cheap plastic, too), so it left plenty of room for improvement anyway.
now, not only size and geometry are exactly correct, but the Zero Glide nut and fret have graced the instrument, and brought it closer to instruments with a cost factor of x-times, in terms of tone and playability, too.
sustain has greatly improved, and with the zero-fret concept implemented here, the output level of each string is now perfectly even, smoothly balanced against all others' – and this happens when playing acoustic-only (unplugged), too!
the added benefit of having the same tonal response at each string –regardless of it being either plucked open, or fretted – is a luxury that leads to exploring voicings you wouldn't really try on any "standard nut" guitar, to a certain extent.
i'm not a professional luthier, i've had no formal training on the matter, and ideally i would have preferred to have the Zero Glide nut kit installed by a trusted luthier – despite the moderate price of the guitar itself – in return of the piece of mind that anything had been done properly... but with COVID-19 came the lockdown, which made luthier unreachable, so i had to do the job myself, with what few tools i own, and without much previous experience on this type of things.
i could only do it slowly, with an utterly careful attention, measuring almost after each stroke on sand paper or file, until both nut and fret were finally sized right – so right, actually, that it now fits snug, and keeps itself in place, without even a drop of glue under it... i took indeed my time, while luthier would have been blazing fast in comparison, and would have made the job look like it had always been there, like it was factory-installed from the start... let's be fair, my execution is a bit crude, without the shine (and smooth-to-the-touch feeling) of a thick glossy coat that i couldn't apply where it connects to the neck's finish... but the job turned out to be easy to figure and carry out, and the result is a game-changer for what is now a guitar on par with ones of three or four orders of magnitude in price.
to make matters even more perfect, though, there's an extra bit that Musikhaus Thomann should definitely add to its offer, as an extra item to be bought on the side: it's the selection of (these very) "Zero Glide frets" in stainless steel that the manufacturer offers on its website.
why you want them, too, is easy to explain: stringing and restringing, tuning and retuning, in the (not so very) long run, cuts a groove under each string on the zero fret that grows from microscopic at first, to tiny after some time, which may spoil the fun-factor when doing "bendings".
stainless steel fretwire doesn't suffer from this otherwise perfectly typical kind of wear, so it would make sense that it was available for shopping here, too.
all in all, it's a piece of superb ingenuity and simplicity, one that can boost the actual performance of your instrument, and make it so much more fun to play, tone- and touch- and tune-wise, at a price that's almost gifted – against the benefit it returns.
highly recommended – and i'm about to install it on other guitars, both solid- and hollow-bodied, too.

Lohnt sich!
Thomas6647, 07.09.2015
Im Überblick: das Paket ist prima, es gibt verschiedene Bundstäbchen, die je nach Gitarre/Vorgabe entsprechend einsetzbar sind und es gibt Anleitungen im Netz.
Ganz so einfach, wie bereits Gerd7364 den Prozess beschrieben hat, fand ich es aber leider nicht. Das klappt, wenn sich die alten Teile gut ablösen, das neue Teil den bisherigen Maßen sehr nahe kommt usw. Ist das nicht der Fall, wird es kniffliger, wenn man nichts am Griffbrett kaputt machen möchte. Außerdem muss man zur Anpassung ggf. nicht nur in der Höhe einen Abtrag vornehmen (Feilen), sondern auch in der Breite. Man sollte da schon etwas Übung mit der Feile haben und auch immer wieder nachmessen (Schieblehre!), damit nicht plötzlich zu viel oder schief weggeschliffen wurde. Auch muss der seitliche Abstand in der Breite oben und unten gleich sein, damit die Saiten sauber drüber laufen. Vergessen darf man auch nicht, dass das Bundstäbchen entsprechend der Halsbreite gekürzt werden muss, an dern Kanten abgerundet - sprich: gefeilt - werden muss. Und es muss entsprechender Klebstoff besorgt werden.
Also ehrlich: ohne handwerkliches Geschick vielleicht besser jemand anderes machen lassen.
Das Ergebnis dieser Aufwertung ist allerdings wirklich erstaunlich!
5 Sterne, weil das Ergebnis überzeugt. Aber es sollte in der Produktbeschreibung auf die benötigte handwerkliche Leistung aufmerksam gemacht werden.

Eine Bereicherung für jede Gitarre
Vandraren, 01.05.2020
Der Einbau war ganz einfach, ein bisschen abfeilen und kürzen und schon passte der Sattel perfekt. Ich habe ihn an meiner Hoyer M3 Akustikgitarre angebracht und bin sehr zufrieden. Sound und Sustain haben sich vor allem in den hohen Saiten verbessert.

Don't be afraid - just do it!
03.06.2016
NOTE: I wrote an update to this original review and changed the title after having more experience with Zero Glide nuts.

---

I goofed up and failed to measure string spacing, so I ordered an unsuitable nut! Don't be an idiot like me, remember the old adage "measure twice, saw once"!

No sawing is involved with the zero glide nut, but you get the point - MEASURE BEFORE YOU ORDER.

So I didn't install the nut. The reason I write this review anyway, is because I wish to let you know there is an annoying little problem you should be aware of:

The 4 included special zero frets of various sizes are pre-bent to a much too small fretboard radius and don't actually fit the nut at all in that regard!

To install this properly, you'll need to flatten your chosen zero fret a fair bit.This is *not* going to be easy, because it's made of *really* hard alloy!

A very good thing once it's in place, but not so good when you're trying to reshape it...

I really want to zero fret my guitars, so I'll try again later. Unfortunately, this is going to be a more involved affair than I thought, because they don't come pre-slotted with the string spacing I need. Meaning I'll have to invest in an expensive set of nut slotting files and use zero glide nut blanks.

And of course figure out a way to bend the fret without destroying it. I'm the proud owner of a few unused spares to experiment on at least...

The manufacturing of the nut is otherwise flawless, and they used good materials for both nut and fret. If they only radiused the frets correctly they would have gotten full score with this product.

---

Update:

Since writing this I've fitted all my guitars with zero glide nuts, and I got some use out of this misbought one as well. I felt I should add two things to this review:

1. The fret wire can be hammered with a plastic/rubber hammer against a piece of wood until it has the correct radius. It wasn't half as hard as I thought it would be.

2. IT IS WORTH IT! The zero fret improves tuning for the first few frets, inproves tuning stability, removes annoying "steps" when tuning, and makes fretted and unfretted notes blend better. And you can get an extremely low action that still doesn't buzz.

I put these zero frets on all my guitars for a reason!
