3D printed nut... Crazy? Or, so crazy that it just might work?
This just came to me in a dream...
I've been ever so slowly converting a 4 string p-bass to a 5 string p-bass as a "just for fun" project. And the only thing that's been holding me back so far is the nut. I would never be able to figure that out, I'd probably wreck so many nuts trying to make a good one that it wouldn't even be funny.
But, what if I just 3D printed one? I know a thing or two about 3d modelling. And with things like Shapeways, it wouldn't be more than a couple bucks anyway.
Hand making a nut from scratch, impossible... But having one printed, and later making any necessary adjustments, that I can do! What do you guys think?
