"Hi agian, it may be the camera angle, but in BQs photo of the nut spacer the holes look too high. Keep in mind that they also need to allow downward pressure of the strings onto the zero fret giving a break angle to prevent buzzing. Just a thought.…"

"That’s the new one Pick, it has the square holes to match the square sound holes? You could totally cut the top down to replicate a nut tho?"
