I just put a new nut in and it seems to have lowered the sustain expecially on my open strings. What can i do to fix this?
#2

Lots of plastic nuts are hollow. Those suck sustain like you would not believe. Also the nut could be cut too low, if the strings are at a softer angle over the nut then they won't ring out as well. I would suggest investing in a properly cut bone or graphite nut. Maybe even brass, if you want maximum sustain.

If you care about your nut, which you should since it's vital to the tone and playability of your guitar, take your guitar to a proper tech who can cut and fit a proper nut.
