Hi,
So I put new string on my gibson ES137 yesterday and the B and G string keeps making a kind of 'knocking clicking noise the same noise I someone's hear when I tune the G string' when I bend them. Guessing it needs a new nut? The nuts about 2 years old.
Thanks!

Probably just needs some lubrication. Get some graphite in there and see what happens. You can also re-shape the nut slot. Lots of options before replacement becomes necessary.

Was it re-strung properly? Did you check the strings are stretched out properly? Is the noise coming from the nut or saddle?
#4
Yes it's ive restrung it probably but I've lost my cutters so some of the string G is sticking out and hitting the B string... I've streched them. And it's coming out from the nut.
#5
Is the nut attached properly or is it loose when the strings aren't on? Is there any issues when bending other strings?

Had this problem with my brand new g&l. Didn't have a lubrication problem, the nut was just carved too wide. Was under warranty so I sent it down to Fullerton; they also discovered some uneven frets and are now replacing the whole neck. Very cool of them.

Anyways, if it's not a string or lube issue, and you can't file the nut without ruining the set up, a new one may be in order ultimately
