Acoustic Guitar Nut Replacement

Acoustic guitar nut replacement and what you should know

We feel that an acoustic guitar nut made from bone is the best for your tone. Over time you may notice your guitar strings buzzing on open notes. This open string buzz is usually caused by nutย slots that have worn down from playing and tuning your guitar up and down. The guitar strings are touching the first fret and they shouldn’t be! This can be quite annoying when your trying to play your acoustic guitar in any situation.

There is however a solution. It’s time to have your acoustic guitar nut replaced by a professional. We will often fabricate nuts made from bone. We start from a bone blank and fabricate the nut to fit your acoustic guitar the way that it should. A lot of guitar manufacturers will use synthetic materials for acoustic guitar nuts to cut down on costs however we believe an acoustic guitar nut fabricated from bone will bring new life into your acoustic guitar, our customers like them and so will you.ย 

Customers will at times ask us to install a prefabricated acoustic guitar nut that they bought online. Unfortunately most of the time these nuts do not fit properly. Either the string spacing is uneven or they are not the right size.

We know how frustrating this can be, we are here to guide you.
