i've seen the opposite question addressed, when people switch to heavier gauge strings, time to file them nut slots..
how about switching to a lighter gauge? obviously you can't add nut
what i'm wondering is are there other problems i should anticipate.
i think maybe a thinner string would mean more moving around in the slot?
also of note, i should mention i actually have a solid brass nut someone was kind enough to build and install.
i like it cause it adds a unique sorta metallic zing to the tone. so if ordinarily I'd be worrying about wearing
grooves down into a wooden nut over time, i'm not sure that would affect my brass one.
if i'm planning on going from standard 45-105 down to maybe 40 60 80 100,
what else should i maybe be concerned about or keep in mind? thanks
