If you have a Fender® guitar or re-issue from the 1950's-60's or 70's, this is your nut!
A 7.25" radius, work with a curved or flat bottom and permanently lubricated for great tuning stability. It works in both a flat bottom or curved bottom nut slot due to its ingenious design, just sand off the tab for a curved bottom.
It is pre-slotted to make for a quick and easy install.
For just about all Fender® electric guitars made in the 1950’s, 60’ and 70’s… that’s a lot!
The 7.25” fingerboard radius originated in the early 1950s and was used for most Fend® electric instruments until the 1980s. In the 80's it was changed to a slightly flatter 9.5" radius.
