Soxys tech tip - don't own nut files?
Just need to lower those slots a little bit?
Easy - Take some old strings, cut a piece of each into a short length....around 20cm long.
Now, buy some 400 grit wet and dry paper from the hardware store. Wrap a piece AROUND THE STRING.
Holding the paper and the string you can now pull the string TIGHT at each end.
It will now cut like a very smooth file. Use each string for each slot. (So your A string goes in your A string slot, etc)
With the thickness of the paper you will be the perfect size for each nut slot! KEEP FILING AND CHECKING SLOWLY. Rotate the paper so it stays fresh with each attempt.
There you have "SOXY'S GUERRIILLA TECHNIQUES" - to get you and the artist through the gig. In tune.
Hope this helps everyone,
