ffrankwhite Posted June 27, 2008 Share Posted June 27, 2008 OK, so i got this guitar (looks just like Keith Richardses, cool!!). ahhh i dunno, its like a copy of the 50s one i think...made in Korea, ooooooooh but anywayz right i got this guitar and im left handed so obviously i strung the bitch backwards. now on my last guitar or one of my last guitars (a shitty little yamaha) the string usta always pop out of the fuckin...the grooves on the nut i believe its called. now whilst stringing this one i noticed that each groove is designed to accomodate the proper string its meant to be on so if you string it backwards the low E is on the groove for the high E and it shouldn't fit and it doesnt really, it sort of rests on top of it yet, amazingly enough, doesnt slip or pop out of the groove but at the same time (i think, i dont have a good ear for this shit) it sounds fucking dulled.my question basically is should i just get a fucking file and fix the grooves on the nut up or is there some proper guitar tech do-it-this-way-or-you-will-fuck-up-your-guitar way to do it?
