Just another day at the cat shop.
It's a decorative thing. If I recall correctly, it goes back all the way to german and spanish guitar makers in the early 19th century. I seem to recall that Gibson did it on one or two special models and NAMM show stuff. They're pretty, but their one downside is that it increases the chance of a nut slot, especially the low and high E's, of blowing out if they receive a sharp enough blow.
Somewhere I probably still have an old book on guitar building that shows a scalloped nut as the 'right' way to finish a nut.
I'd never seen one until now but I like it.
Because! Cat shop!
I could break it.
