I switched string gauge on my new Strat, and now that the strings have settled in, when i use the tremolo my g string is gettin pinched.

Any quick mends for this?

Would I be better off just swappin out the nut for the roller nut like on the deluxes?

you can file the nut a little.

and you can lube the nut cut with a pencil. the graphite helps keep it from getting caught.

if you choose to file, use a tothpick with a little light sand paperwrapped around it.
pass the file only once or twice and file UPwards, up from the headstock side up to the fretboard side.

dont make the cut too large. Just large enough.

I can see so many dirty jokes if this was in the Pit.


On topic, I believe changes in gauge requires a truss rod adjustment. You could swap out the nut, maybe a roller or a locking nut.

what I have done in those situations is take the string off, put a little drop of crazy glue in the nut at the string slot and let it dry. Crazy glue dries to a hard crystaline and when you put your string back on, it will be raised up a hair and will not get pinched. Also take a pencil and rub the graphite in all of the string slots on the nut, it will prevent them from sticking.

^if it's too low then a drop of glue and baking soda mix will work fine, but i dont think his cut is low, just narrow.


and guys it's really not funny, so can you all just shut up.

LOL @ Title.... but seriously you can use a file like one of those really thin fingernail files to widen it out just a bit, just take a piece of scrap string, file a little, test fit, file a little, test fit until it slides somewhat freely. If the file is too big, just take some 400 grit sandpaper and fold it with a sharp crease, rough sides out, and file with that.
