The photos above show some of the stages of making a new bone nut. As with all the nuts we hand cut, we start from a bone blank and cut and shape it down to the exact size required for the best possible fit.
We use the old one as a template were possible (in this case the old one was glued back together) so the new nut retains the look of the original nut and the string spacing remains the same.
Once the new nut was made, the guitar was restrung and setup to the owners playing style, then detail cleaned before being ready to collect. The picture of the lady on the bodywork is Miss Venezuela, the name of the customers old band!
