Brass nut: How much space to leave on the sides?
I am replacing a nut and want to buy as much width at the nut as possible. I've broken plastic and bone nuts before at the low and high string slot, so I will go with brass (I have steel frets, so I'm not worried it will be too bright).
How much space can I get away with leaving on the outside of the nut (e.g., between the E string slot and the edge)? I figure since it's brass and much more difficult to break I can get pretty close...?
