Problems with my nut

Discussion in 'Luthier's Corner' started by 88tuner, Sep 3, 2004.

  1. I'm building a bass and I normally use the graphtech 6 string nut from Carvin. It measures 2.03 inches. The problem is that I typically build my own neck around the nut and bridge but this time I'm using a custom made neck and the spacing with this nut will be slightly too wide. I need to make my own nut or find a 6 string nut that is shorter than the graphtech 2.03 nut. Any suggestions on where I might get quick hunk of brass to make a nut or where I might order a premade nut to fit?

    They sell nut blanks at stewmac.com, and you can probably find them elsewhere too. Search Google using "nut blank". :)
  3. Small brass stock is available at any hobby store. You can even get square "key" stock from hardware stores.
