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 bought a Gold Tone OB 150 Masterclone banjo that is equipped with a Zero Glide nut. This nut is amazing. YES it will help with tone. No more string binding with Zero Glide. Ever notice on a new instrument how when you are tuning up and on occasion you hear a sound like a string is catching in the slot You will not have that issue with Zero Glide. Once you actually play an instrument with a Zero Glide nut you will notice some differences. You may want to outfit all of your stringed instruments to Zero Glide. No need for slot files to set the action at the nut side of the neck. No more smoothing out string slots with high dollar files that snap really easy. No more using graphite or grease on the nut. Zero Glide takes care of that. Might be the first healthy choice for a nut for your instrument. Get one and install it. You will love it.
Installed in a vintage Japanese Custom Shop Fender Tele. Great low action and better tuning stability. Easy install as well. Thanks for a great product.
I've owned guitars with zero frets and always wondered why the idea never really caught on...For me,It improves the feel,tuning stability and playability..I was interested when I saw this device and wondered if it was something I would be capable of installing without risk to my acoustic... it turned out to be easier than I'd hoped..with just a small amount of sanding I had it installed in less than an hour...I'll be ordering at least one more to try out on one of my electrics..thanks Bob M.
