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.
Is it a pickup magnet/bar maybe?...
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.
Height adjustable. I also have one but have never used it.
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.
Simple idea and great concept. I want one!
I've seen those before somewhere, prolly guitar mag or catalog. 1980s I think.
I had one of those (or might still have it somewhere). It's a height adjustable metal nut; mine was brass.
FenderGyrl can you please explain it for dummies like me?
I'm just glad we don't actually need those in guitars....
You got it Hoodie...Thanks for researching it !!!!
I actually have one of these, I put it on my Jazzmaster that I made
lyall love that jazzmaster how do you get on with that nut. thought the picture was of a bridge when I first saw it
