What is a Zero Glide® Replacement Nut?

The Zero Glide Nut System improves upon the "zero-fret" concept by combining a specially-made nickel-silver fret with a patented bone nut that’s designed for fitting into the stock nut slot of any fretted instrument. Zero Glide provides four frets of graduated heights to assure you perfect action at the first fret. This breakthrough system decreases friction at the peghead by 93% for greatly increased tuning stability by allowing the string to return to its original pitch following bends or aggressive playing techniques. An added benefit: open-string tone becomes the same as fretted-string tone! For more information, view our FAQ
