    I found this in my parts box. I don't remember how I got it, or when I got it. Pretty cool concept.

    Looks like it's specifically designed to snap strings. :D

    I was almost hesitant to open this!:)

    I was envisioning a close up of that kid that got bit by spider in "We're The Millers"...

    So you laid that down with the low e on right and high e on left?

    Looks a little screwy...

    Interesting idea though - height adjustable across all six strings.

    Wait... it's not height-adjusting, it's a locking nut, -right?
    (or am I stupider than usual....)

    Do you get two different widths to slot by turning it 90 degrees?

    I think it's height adjustable. Notice the size of the slots across the nut go from thin to thick.

    I was guessing that just gave finer control of the height. But could be.

    Yeah, I agree. That could come in handy while experimenting with different action heights.

    I quick fly around the interweb reveals this is indeed a height adjustable nut, made by German parts manufacturer ABM. Most commonly available from Allparts, but can also be found on fleabay.

    I had one of those (or might still have it somewhere). It's a height adjustable metal nut; mine was brass.

    1980s, yes.
