    I have ordered a Bongo 5 nut from the factory and the fellow I ordered it from did not know if it was pre-cut for the strings. Does anyone here have a clue? Thanks.

    Bongo nuts are Earvana nuts that are cut and intonated to the strings. It's cut and you'll be fine!

    I got a response over at the other forum also. Thanks. Only problem is, is that if it's cut (fully) I won't be fine. I need to move the G string inward...
    I wonder if I can get a regulat nut cut for it? I noticed that the Stealth Bongos have a regular nut. That may be my last option.
