    First time nut-filer, got 'er done.

    Posted by Randy on May 18, 2017

    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.
