ok the other day I was at Amazon for some other crap
and ran up on the Fender LSR roller nut for 30 bucks
the WD roller nut for 10 bucks
and the Mighty Mite roller nut for 9 bucks
being chea... thrifty as I am
I got one of these
so I got it because of the individual rollers
unlike the WD brand that has two
strings sharing a single roller
the chrome blends in well with the couch
as you can see here
the break on top of the rollers will be back a bit from the regular front of the standard strat nut
so with my handi-dandy digital calipers
I have determined that from the front of the chrome
(where the fretboard starts)
to the center of the roller
(the break of the string over the nut)
to be 3.5 mm
I would think that that would mean
on the bullet strat, that I'm plannin on putting it on,
once I remove the nut
and shave a spot for it to sit
I would hve to then remove about 3.5 mm of fretboard
to get the scale back right
would this be correct?
or am I just totally wrong and
the nut breaks at the rear ?
I have heard that the PRS and Washburn guitars with the Buzz Feiten
have a compensated nut
IIRC the nut is slightly forward on the high E side
does anyone have PRS or washburn to confirm this?
if tis true,
then whilst the chisel is in hand............
