Yesterday I replaced the 10-46 strings on my G-400 with 10-52s. The strings themselves are fine, but I've noticed when tuning that the lower three strings (the ones which have changed, the upper half of 10-52 is the same as 10-46) have a problem when tuning in that, when the key is turned, the pitch will not change for a moment, then will "jump", often past the desired pitch. I assume this is an issue of the slots in the nut being too small, causing the strings to catch. Before I go and ask someone with the tools and expertise to fix it, does my explanation seem correct?

You need to lubricate it. Just hit it with graphite. Pencil lead will do.

+1. Plus I always tend to tune-upwards. Meaning I detune the guitar to below where it needs to be & tune it upwards.

Edit: PS LOL @ nut problems.
