Nice Banjo Upgrade

Apr 18, 2016

The bone nut was easy to install. I sanded the length and depth with a table sander. The instructions are complete and easy to follow. Four zero frets of different sizes are included in the banjo kit--you try the smallest and work your way up until you have no open string buzz. Use medium viscosity cyanoacrylate (available from Stewmac) so you have time to set the nut and fret properly. I'm pleased with the results, improved tone, and hammer-ons and pull-offs are more defined.

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.

This Fixed It

Nov 3, 2023
The G string on my Epiphone Dot was bound up in the nut and always pinging loose when trying to tune it. It would suddenly be sharp then suddenly flat etc. I installed a Zero Glide on her her and problem solved. Not only that but it has also improved tone. Honestly I was just trying to do a quick fix in order to sell her but the new life in her changed my mind.

I love it

I bought this for a Washburn Oscar Schmidt OE-40B archtop guitar, on which the nut had broken when putting on new strings. I always wanted to try a zero-fret nut and was pleasantly surprised at how well it works. Perfect string height and tone.

A Lot Less Hassle Than Slotting.

Resolves the nut-string height issue with a simple and easy installation. Worked perfect on my Heritage 16.
