works like a charm for the stuff I do at weekend gigs,from flutter trem to dive whammy , but most of all, I no longer hear that creaking sound by the nut when using my tremolo and it stays in tune well along with my Wilkinson VSVG Tremolo.
Easy to install for me cause I work for two guitar shops on a on/off basis and am use to making bone nuts from scratch,so if you've never done guitar nut work before I suggest taking it to a well trusted guitar shop with a good tech. It does take patience if you want it to look like a pro and function the way its suppose to. Highly recommend it along with a Wilkinson VSVG and a high gear ratio tuners.. Be buying more soon for my other guitars....
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.
I just put the Zero Glide on my guitar. Very impressed. This is as close to perfect as I can get. I can bend all over the guitar and 95 of the time the notes come back to the original pitch....the few times they don t it s so minimal most people wouldn t notice it....I really believe that it s probably the tuners....they re decent low grade tuners. Nothing special. Amazing considering this is a 300.00 guitar. I checked the space between the 1st fret and the E and B strings fretted at the third fret...distance between 1st fret and bottom of string .....they looked like they were less than a thousandth and the guitar was not buzzing on an open string. The action is very low with extra thin strings on it. This made the guitar play even easier. I had the strings set at about 4 thousandths from the first fret while fretting at the third. This took them lower....especially on the first 5 frets. Good job on this I do wish they would have sent me a smaller fret.
