These are my second set of Hosco nut files, these for electric and 1 set for classical guitar. Simply the best!
These are honestly the best nut slotting files to use for heavy use. They are more durable, usable, and consistently-made than StewMac's and I prefer them over Uo-Chikyu tapered files for the price. Use these for the majority of setups and nut slotting and the Hosco individually-sized files for custom setups and you will have made a great investment!
These files work as expected, just go slow and make sure you don't remove to much material. Great pricing here at PLT also, same files go for $70 on amazon.
I have a drawer full if nut files from various places,
but these 2 sided files are my favorite, they come in increments that work, you can tell pretty much by looking at them which ones are which 10 /26 i have some from another place 12/16 so when the marking wears down on the handle you are guessing... Great product Great Seller...Thank You
They aren't a high-end pro set, but they work great for personal setup use. I've used them on quite a few nut and bridge saddle slots.
these make quick work of setting up nut slots.
Perfect set for electric guitars, and worked great to finish up a preslotted tusq nut.
I'm not a pro luthier. Just have a few electric guitars on which the nut slots were simply not deep enough, figure it's something I can tackle myself with fairly priced tools. I'm no expert but filing the slots seems easier to tackle than trying to remove and replace a filed-down nut. First I tried those cheap torch-tool rods but they did nothing. These files are very easy to use and cut quick and clean. I went too far on the G-string slot. Had to use the baking-soda & super glue trick to fill (make sure you know how to rescue yourself if you cut too deep!). Lesson learned, go slow with these files. Plenty of youtube videos on what to do. I used some string/slot lube and with bends strings go back to tune no problem with no further effort. It's really not a big deal with the right tools.
Makes a big difference in playability of the guitar, getting the action low, and barre chords near the nut are much easier.
Ordered these guitar nut files so I could do my own adjustments to my guitars. Very pleased with the quality of these. They work very well.
