A Compensated Brass Malmsteen Nut to Help You Achieve Perfect Intonation. Hello again from AxeMasters. Guitar intonation is an often overlooked procedure which, when done properly, helps you get each string properly tuned. This means that your guitar sounds great regardless of whether you’re fretting or playing open chords. How many times have you been playing, sounding great, when you bounce into an open C chord and suddenly the tuning sounds terrible? A properly compensated nut will fix this. Curved Bottom to Fit Fender Malmsteen Style Curved Nut Slot. In our experience, the three treble strings are typically the most bothersome with respect to intonation. So, we’ve specially slotted our compensated nut at the G, B and high E slots. By removing material to the proper depth in those three slots, the scale length for those strings is increased just enough. Now, even if saddle travel is nearing the end, you’ll still get the intonation “just right”. Our CURVED nut is hand ground and sanded from solid musical brass and round-slotted for perfect string placement. All hand-made – no machines. Very attractive brushed surface finish. 1/8″ thick, 3/16″ tall, 1 5/8 long. Let us know if you need different dimensions – happy to do it! – use search keyword: “axemasters”. Something so simple, it’s amazing this compensated nut idea isn’t a standard item. The C, D, and G open chords have always been slightly out of tune for me, and for the last few decades I just learned to work around it. Your nut works perfectly for intonating those chords!
