Zero Glide on My Old SG

Feb 22, 2017

I had a Zero Glide Zero Fret Nut installed on my 68 Epiphone SG Clone by the luthier who does ALL of my guitar work Scott Thompson at String Craft - here in Memphis . 1st off I have to say that this guitar is one of my go-to guitars the others being my 1964 handmade Mosrite Celebrity Prototype and an early 80 s Mexican Telecaster. Upon getting my guitar back with the new Zero Glide installed I plugged it into my 65 Blackface Deluxe Reverb with a JBL D120f and I was IMMEDIATELY blow away by the improvement in the TONE of this guitar... It was pretty good before BUT now it is piano like ... The tone blew me away not to mention the improvement in ACTION... You see I am a BIG proponent of Zero Frets due to my Mosrite which is the standard by which I judge all others but I was not ready for the massive improvement that was realized by the installation of the Zero Glide Zero Fret Nut on this guitar. I have used this guitar now on a couple of gigs and am STILL blown away. OH tun

Love the ZerO Glide Nuts !!!

The ZerO Glide Nuts are everything they say they are,.. and more. I just started playing guitar about 3 years ago, but I've worked with wood and restoring antiques all my life, so those skills and knowledge have been bleeding over into guitar maintenance.

This so to speak, was my first nut job. But the idea was clear from the start - remove & replace. Now the guitar nobody thought was worth fixing, is playing hotter than it ever was. Many thanks to StewMac for suppling quality from and for craftsmen.

I put one on my Taylor 12 fret, it made a big improvement in string tone, tuning, and intonation. I'm now going to install them on all my guitars.

AWESOME FIX FOR PROBLEM GUITAR

Feb 24, 2018

i HAVE ONE O TFHE NICER IMPORT JOHNSON ACOUSTIC ELECTRIC CUTAWAY GUITARS . SOLID SPRUCE TOP. INDIAN ROSEWOOD BACK AND SIDES. SOMETIME BACK I WAS ADJUSTING THE TRUSS ROD AND THE END BROKE OFF. LUCKILY THE ACTION WASN'T TERRIBLE. THE REAL PROBLEM I WAS HAVING WAS WHEN I PLAYED AT CHURCH I SWITCH BACK AND FORTH FROM CAPO TO NO CAPO DEPENDING ON THE SONG CHOSEN. WHEN I TUNED MY GUITAR STANDARD IT WAS FINE AND SOUNDED PRETTY GOOD BUT WHEN I USED THE CAPO THE GUITAR WOULD BE SLIGHTLY OUT OF TUNE. i JUST HAPPENED ACROSS TE ZERO GLIDE AND FIGURED I HAD NOTHING TO LOSE SINCE I COULD RETURN THE NUT BACK TO ORIGINAL WITH NO PROBLEM. I GOT THE CORRECT NUT BY USING THE STRING GUIDE PRINT OUT. TOOK MY TIME FOLLOWED VIDEO INSTRUCTIONS AND MADE MINOR ADJUSTMENTS UNTIL I WAS DONE. I CANNOT TELL YOU HOW PLEASED I AM. NO MORE OUT OF TUNE WITH CAPO. CONSISTENT BRIGHTER SOUND AND MUCH BETTER ACTION. I WOULD RECOMMEND THIS PRODUCT TO ANYONE I AM EVEN THINKING OF PUTTING ONE ON MY 1963 GIBSON LG1 SINCE THERE IS NO PERMANENT CHANGE TO THE GUITAR. THANKS ZERO GLIDE

Worth The Effort

May 15, 2016

An inexperienced guitar tech worked on the nut of my Guild M75 Aristocrat electric and I ended up with a "sitar" sound on my high E string and a dead G string and bad intonation. A friend recommended Zero Glide and that company recommended this particular nut.

Installation was not particularly difficult for a handy guy, but took two hours and involved sanding nearly 1/8 inch off the bottom of the new nut and 1/16th plus off each side while being careful to keep it even. The video on the company website helps. Once fitted correctly you decide how big of a 'zero fret' you want. There are four of different sizes in the package. I tried them all and found that the smaller ones provide very low action at the nut (which is nice), but require a higher action up the neck to clear the first fret where the strings can rattle. I ended up using the largest fret provided as it allowed me low action where I need it. Once you have it figured out you trim the zero fret to length and glue it
