renablistic Posted January 22, 2004 Report Share Posted January 22, 2004 Well i'm gonna ask the question, and try. The more i think about it, the more i think, if you want more tone from the wood, why not a nut made of wood? And a nice, heavy kind, like walnut or something. Anyone try this? Anyone have some behind the scenes info? And for the experiment: I just converted an old 70's 3/4 size acoustic to fretless, and i shined up all the pieces, and refinished the whole neck, headstock, and put a few coats of poly on the body to get some lost shine back. But, i lost the nut. Lucky me, it's a zero fretter (i love zero frets [oh, and think about how low the string action 'll be]), so doing a little experimentation aint bad. So, i've decided to make a nut out of some pine (it's all i have around). So i guess i'll se if it wears down over time and etc. But i mean, poly should be able to protect the wood, right?
