tra Posted May 21, 2010 Report Share Posted May 21, 2010 Nut question: I purchased a Karosa neck from eBay and the nut is in bad shape. I've never made my own nut before so I'm thinking that getting a preslotted nut would be the best bet. I took the measurements and I can find preslotted nuts that are the same length, but the thickness or height might be slightly off (by like .2 mm). This might be a dumb question, but how tight of a tolerance is there in selecting the closest fit? If I get something with the correct length, but with slight variances in the other dimensions should I be ok? Which dimensions would you say are most crucial? Should I be worried about string spacing? Bridge placement: I've never built a guitar before and want to start with a six string cigar box guitar. I'm not sure how far back the bridge will need to be placed. I'm planning on using this bridge. http://store.guitarfetish.com/topmohabrfit.html Thank you for the help!
