Locking nut placement?

Recommended Posts

It depends on the fret height and desired action. I usually use jumbo fret wire and use 2/32 of fretboard material beneath the nut. It's usually close for me. If you take off too much wood, you can shim the nut (see AllParts.com).

Just be careful to keep it perfectly level when removing the fretboard wood for the nut.
