ajktsb Posted June 2, 2014 Share Posted June 2, 2014 After being a self taught guitar player now for about 5 years, I have been frustrated over and over again by tuning issues on every guitar I played specifically on the 3rd string A near the nut. Eventually I realized that it wasn't bad guitars, out of whack truss rods, or poorly intonated guitars. It was the nature of simple mathematics as applied to guitar necks. I also have had issues with the nut on my JTV69. It was cut too low on the first string (high E) and I could never get rid of the fret buzz. So this weekend I installed an Earvana nut. I am astounded, amazed, and shocked at the improvement! It was easy to install and needed virtually no adjustments once the guitar was strung and intonated properly. Tuning is GREAT now on those first few frets and the new nut raised the string to the perfect level with a simple straightening of the truss rod. Wow! Why did I wait this long? 1 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
