Please keep the sexual pun jokes to a minimum. =D

How often should the nut be lubricated? My nut is squeaking when I bend notes, and i think it may actually be getting harder to bend.

I heard that if you draw a line through all 6 nut slots with a graphite pencil every time you change your strings, that helps.

Graphite? Odd, I haven't heard of that. How would I go about getting some?

Hmm, I guess graphite pencils work. Interesting idea.

Is this some sort of jury rig thing or is there real lube you're supposed to buy to do it?

I dont know of any other lube than graphite... it works for me. I just draw in the nut slot every time I change strings.

Graphite is really the ONLY lubricant for nuts.

I usually top-up the lead when I change a set of strings, guitar rarely goes out of tune from using the whammy.

I use graphite from the home improvement center. It is cheap enough. Usually less than $5 and the tube lasts forever.

The downside is, it's messy as hell if you are not careful. Get graphite on your clothes and your wife will hate you lol. And spread some paper too. Carpet hates it.

yeah pencil lead is the best thing for it. i always draw lines in the nut, and then sprinkle some excess in also for that extra... slipperyness.. lol
