Hiya mate,

Glad you still playing - I often wonder how life turns out for my guitars once they move on to another home. No problem at all with sending you a taller nut. All I need is the length and height of the current nut, if thats possible?

Im actually away for a week as of tomorrow, but soon as I get back Il sort it.

Best PM me your address too

All the best
