Kurt is spot on, and he is very good at writing detailed instructions. I know these things, but to put them out there like Kurt is not a talent of mine.
It's the same reason I don't teach air conditioning at local colleges. Just not a classroom teacher.

I totally agree Danny, Kurt's ability to explain things in writing is superb.  This thread has been very helpful for me and I have learned a great deal that I did not know.  Everyone has been very helpful and all of the articles and links added to the success of the thread.  When I find the time I plan on creating a synopsis of the most crucial things to look for and how to correct them.  Meanwhile, here is an article that I found on my own that maybe some others might find interesting as well....   http://www.lutherie.net/nuts.html


A shucks you guys.  Thanks for your compliments.  It gives me confidence and encouragement.  Much appreciated.

Now, where is the "swollen head" emoticon?

George, this book covers many of the issues we face with acoustics and electrics. Dan Erlewine is a name you may know, one of the best guitar techs out there.

That book is my go-to reference.  Most of my "skills" began with using Erlewine's instructions and techniques about10 years ago.

And if you're going to be working on the nuts, saddles or wiring of your guitars on a regular basis, get one of these to help you see what you're doing...even if you wear glasses, these help you really dial in your work.

Also, the graphite is great for eliminating pings...but if you don't want that messy black stuff on your nut (!), use a piece of waxed dental floss, running it back and forth through the nut slots a few times before you string up.
