Would it be worth putting a brass nut into my American Strat? I want a nice trebley sound, and I hear that a brass nut contributes to it. I also know YJM uses one, and I am a big fan of his. Is this a good idea, or should I just stick with the original nut?
Well, it will make it more trebly, but not in a harsh way. If you want more treble, go ahead and get one. Supposedly they are just as good as a graphite nut as far as tremming go.
