Setting up a new build for locking nut.

Recommended Posts

Can anyone here provide some info or point me to a website or video that shows a good way to install a locking nut? I’m starting a build with a neck that I have an 11 degree angled headstock. At first I thought I would just leave a space on the neck blank between the fretboard and headstock veneer like I would with a normal nut but then I saw the nut would be sitting to low. So I can either make a maple shim to go there, or what might look better would be to leave enough fretboard for the nut to seat on but I’d need to rout a groove so that I’m just leaving a thin bit on the bottom while making sure that the front edge is at the perfect spot. I’m confused as to the best way to do this. Any info would be appreciated.
