I never replaced a nut on a guitar. It's a 67 Guild D-45. Not a great guitar but a good guitar. I ordered a TUSQ nut for Gibson or Guild. I now have to fit it to the guitar. It came with no grooves for strings. Do I need a special file to put the grooves in? should I take it to a pro?
I asked the person where I purchased it and he said that the strings would gradually make the grooves? Dosen't sound quite right to me... any help or advice would be appreciated. jc
