Nut - Gold Tone, Zero Glide Blank (Unslotted)
The Zero Glide® Replacement Nut System borrows the “zero fret” concept to reduce string contact in the nut by up to 93%, increasing tuning stability, playability, and open string tone. It only take a few minutes to install with absolutely no permanent alteration to your instrument. Zero fret wire included (multiple sizes).
See P-GTNN-ZSX for slotted Zero Glide nuts.
