Is the radius on the acoustics different than on the electrics? Never really thought about it before.

I have "low tension" strings coming in. Going to give them a try. Also, last night I found a set of Zebra strings lying around. They're supposed to be for both acoustic and electric (ala the T*brand thing). Put them on the L-03. Now THAT was funny. Absolutely NO volume acoustically. But they sound great amplified.  It was just an experiment while waiting for my low tensions to come in. After the outdoor marathon of last weekend with rain & humidity the strings were actually rusted. And those were coated strings (I think). Anyway, new strings tomorrow. Hopefully the Low-Ts will help my aging hands.

My feeling is it might not matter if you made the slots wider than the string from immediately above it upwards till it meets the top of the nut.  But then again it might introduce some unwanted noises or buzzes from the string rattling around in the slot.  It is just as easy or easier to file down the entire nut top and polish it, than trying to finesse each slot just so it can be left deeper.  Then, any risk of introducing unwanted noise is minimized.  Plus less chance of the string binding where it changes angle at the back of the nut on its way to the tuner.  I suppose one could shape each (left deeper) slot perfectly to eliminate these problems, but why bother?

As one who does a lot of setups for paying customers, I think it looks better, and is more professional, if each string only projects above the slot the generally accepted amount.

Thanks Kurt, I value you opinion.

Thanks Kurt, I appreciate that advice.  I had read about taking down the top of the nut in articles, but as long as they are wider than the string going up above it, does it really make that much difference?

I just installed a set of ebony buttons on an OM-03 that had previously been on a Martin D35. Not sure what either tuner manufacturer is, but the buttons are compatible and  fit great. So, find some for a Martin D35, and they should work.

Martin has used Pings on most guitars for the last 18 years or so.  My 2005 D-35 has Pings (with Schaller shaped buttons)
