Will Jazz Flats mean nut job?

  1. I'm gonna install for the first time a set of Thomastik-Infeld Jazz Flats on my Fender. Has anyone found it necessary to widen the nut grooves to accomodate this brand? My bass came set-up to accomodate 45-105 roundwounds and the Jazz Flats are 43-100 but I've heard they are different cuz their "Jazz Flats".
     
  2. I never had a problem installing mine.

    Don't think you should have any problem here.
     
  4. I've got a set of Jazz Flats on my Reverend, and everything is cool except the A string.. it's definitely sitting a bit low in the slot. That's the big difference in gauge among those 4 strings.. .70 is pretty skinny for an A. But, it's easily solved with a little shim in the nut slot.

    No problems on 2 different Fenders with the TI flats.

    NUT JOB!!!:eek:
    I don't think the strings will make you nuts. Nor will you need to get a nut job!! I handle my nuts myself and only allow trusted souls to assist. Well that may not be totally true. I am kind of promiscuous. Must be all the rock and roll music that made me that way.;)
