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.

Great Product For Any Guitar.

Wow, what an innovation! This product eliminates the critical process of nut filing completely disappear to be replaced by a zero fret which enhances the sound of your guitar. It is not without some challenges in installation, but once completed your guitar just sounds and plays better.

Unslotted 12 string ZerO Glide

Oct 28, 2017

I recently custom installed a ZerO Glide on my 40 year old 12 string guitar and it really has done the business. There has been a marked improvement in volume and sustain tuning is much smoother and the intonation is spot on.

Zero Glide is an amazing product.

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.
