I need a new nut for my Epi LP100. I have been looking around the net and any of the pre slotted ones come close to my measurements(they are all .020-.035 larger) but they are not exact. do i need do do that much fitting because that seems like alot. I do gunsmithing and none of the parts that i have fitted in firearms don'tneed to be reduced that much

well, you can always sand it till you like it.


the only thing you have to look for is the E to E string spacing. everything else, if you get something that's alright fit, or maybe bigger, you can sand it smaller.

i recommend graphtech tusq nut.

did u get tusq? or the trem nut?

I got trem just because of the matching color, but either case it was better then the shabby plastic one it came with stock.
tusq is going to be better for one that doesn't have a trem... but I was going for stock coloring lol.

the e to e i get from the old part is 1.370 and the tusq part they say fits the epi standard is 1.360. the thing is i have the lp100 not a standard but also the calipers i measured with are worn out from measuring hardened steel for 2 years so that part may work. i was hoping someone else had a lp100 that replaced their nut with a pre slotted one

I did put a new one on my LP100 but had to buy a blank as Im lefthanded. A piece of 220 grit sandpaper taped to a piece of wood will work to sand the ends down to fit right. Problem with epis is they are made in countries that have never heard of our moronic system using inches. And 1 11/16 doesnt convert well to metrics. So a nut made here tends to be a little different than whats on a foreign made guitar. And I know the graphite nut I put on mine was a little thinner than a factory so some bare wood will probably show after you put it on between the nut and truss rod cover.
