While it's not brain surgery, I am taking my  Forum I in for a setup, mostly because the new mediums I put on have a sticky G string (no jokes please). Seems to be binding at the nut - shows up in tuning as flat (adjust), still flat, (adjust), PING! Now sharp.

Tried graphite with very limited and temporary success, considered taking some 600 grit sandpaper to the nut, and decided to find a pro...

Which leads me to my question - does anyone know (of) Larry Smoak at Wooden Wizards? One guy, working out of his home - sounds familiar. He used to be in Florida so maybe Uncle Rob might know him?

I know the name from way back.If I remember right he did some work for a store in Miami called Ed's Guitars {now long gone}.As for the nut slot problem use the sand paper if you don't have a file,leave the string on fold the sandpaper so that there is some exsposed on each side.Take your time drawing it back and forth checking as you go along.
