Fully Adjustable Brass Nut?

Recommended Posts

I might make a nut like that for a set-up tool ; something to test out how low the strings can go at the nut. The problem with it, is that you want the string slots to be at an angle, with the highest point near the first fret. Well, if you make those slots in the screws slanted like that, that means you have to turn the screw a full 360 degress to make any kind of change. If you want to lower the string, say .003", I think a full turn of the screw would lower it more than that. I'm guessing, but my guesses are usually "educated guesses".

If you want a real brass nut, buy a strip of brass. It's not that hard to work with.
