A much loved Martin was brought into the workshop for some TLC, the customer wanted a Zeroglide nut installed along with an upgrade to a bone saddle. This work breaths new life into the acoustic by giving a much brighter tone.
The Zeroglide nut was supplied by the excellent people at www.btnmusic.co.uk
The first step in fitting the new Zeroglide nut was removing the old nut and cleaning out the nut slot, ready for the new Zeroglide to be fitted!
The new saddle was cut and shaped from a bone blank, matching the profile exactly of the existing one, including the compensation for the intonation. The height was then set, setting the action in the process.
With all the work done, the guitar was restrung with a fresh set of strings ready for the customer to enjoy his guitar again!
