Acoustic Glide Nut

Oct 7, 2016

I installed this on an old Alvarez acoustic that used to belong to my Dad. The strings had started to buzz badly and the bridge height was maxed out so I knew it must be the nut. Took about an hour to cut down the new nut and shape with the Drexel tool; sided/polished the frets and installed glide nut with the tallest feet wire. Worked like a charm and no more buzzing. Even lowed the bridge down to a reasonable height as well. Great product and easy to install.

Love the ZerO Glide Nuts !!!

Jan 25, 2018

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.

3rd Zero Glide for me

Nov 3, 2023
I've had 3 Zero Glides installed for me on a couple of banjos had a luthier mess up one of them unfortunately and eventually had to get a new one installed by another luthier. To me the sound on the open strings is clearer and cleaner sounding than with a plain bone nut. And the strings never bind in the nut slots when I'm tuning them.

An Excellent Product!

Apr 30, 2016

I bought two of these, one Gibson-style and one Fender-style for two of my favorite project guitars, an Epiphone LPX and my Jazz-O-Caster parts guitar. The Gibson was a near drop-in, needing only some trimming and shaping for a perfect fit. The Fender was slightly more challenging, as the neck on the Jazz-O-Caster never saw the inside of any Fender-approved factory! It required a 1/32" shim underneath for a proper fit, and some sanding to make room for the tang. There was a marked increase in the brightness of tone for both instruments, as well as improved intonation. This is MUCH easier than installing a traditional nut, and nearly foolproof IF you follow the instructions. Thanks, Stewart-Macdonald, for stocking such a well-engineered product.

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.
