mattharris75 Posted July 10, 2007 Report Share Posted July 10, 2007 OK guys, I feel like i'm going crazy. I think I must have been test fitting my nut about halfway down in its slot, because when I went to mock everything up as I do every few days I noticed that the nut looked really low in the slot. So, I decided to take a few measurements. At the edge of the fretboard the recess for the nut is .14". The total height of the nut at this same edge is .18". This is not including the slots depth. My strings are going to drag on the frets at this height. The fretboard is a Stew Mac 25.5" fender style board. The nut is the Graph Tech fender nut that Stew Mac also stocks (12" vs 7 1/4" radius oddly enough, but I assumed a little slotting would do the trick). Is it commonly necessary to have to shim the nut higher in its slot, or am I missing something obvious here? Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
