I just used the actual string and slid it back and forth on the nut holes until it fit :lol:
It seemed to work good, and it'd probably require alot less effort than sanding it.

If you don't have nut files, then this is the way to do it. Use the end of the string (that you will cut off). If you can, get some sand paper and scratch across the string to make it rougher, then carefully file the slot so the string fits. The slot should slope back and the edge should be clean where the string leaves the nut.

Be prepared to adjust the truss rod afterwards, because the extra tension will likely increase the action when it bows the neck.
