    Skip the new nut. IF you are experiencing binding, file it.
    There is NO NEED for a new nut. It will do NOTHING for your tone. If it DID...it would only be on OPEN strings.

    Everyone is right! It's the fingers. It's the fatter neck. It's the fingers. It's the fingers. Oopsies.

    Unfortunately I cant comment on how the 59/09s compare to the others even though I have a 59/09 and a 57/08. The 59/09 is a neck/bass pup and the 57/08 is a bridge/Treble pup. They were also in...

    I'll ask it again. WHY do you want a new nut? Is the stock one binding and causing tuning issues? If so, thats what nutfiles can be used for.
