Learn how to master one of the most common guitar repair upgrades-the bone nut. This relatively minor upgrade provides a greater tone, more durability and more stable tuning.

In this one-day workshop, we will discuss the main functions of the guitar string nut, talk about the most common mistakes when making one, and go over how to make a perfect bone nut step-by-step. The process can be challenging, and mistakes will happen, but you will learn a solid methodology, and will be given individual attention throughout the process.

We will cover the following:

• String nut function, materials and general considerations when replacing one.
• String nut removal process and common challenges, finish concerns and repair.
• Nut slot truing and sizing.
• Proper squaring, sizing and fitting of the nut blank to the slot.
• String layout and proper spacing.
• String slot depth parameters and proper cutting/sizing of slots.
• Final shaping and polishing to a mirror shine.
• Type and amount of adhesive used to keep the nut in the slot.
