Order a TUSQ XL adjustable nut, you will feel the difference.

Price is near 15 , this is not very expensive.

Wow, what a design. So the "nut" doesn't really contact the guitar, just those two set screws that terminate on top of the brass insert? What keeps the "nut" from moving around in the brass insert? What keeps the set screws from hogging out the brass insert over time?

Not for me.

I'm sure this is/was a hot topic for some, I've just not paid that close attention to it. I am sure folks got religion about it both ways. If it works for you, then great!

Merciful, I have not solved it or done anything since we started talking but There was things done before but nothing worked. I believe a new nut like the one in this thread is the thing to try next, i wish it came in black.

Yea the bottom of the nut has a deep groove that matches the counterpart in the brass piece. the screws are for adjusting height.

Here is what the nuts look like on the bottom.
OMG sorry its so big.

Well you know I wish you luck with it.

I have to admit that I'm troubled because the cause has not been identified. So a 'solution' like this looks like a stab in the dark.

Let us know how it goes though. ATB - ME

ATB?

It bothers me too, but i have this plan:
First get some money. ha.
Then order this nut and try it, hopefully it will become available in black by the time i get some money.

Then part 2. If that fails, I'll get a new guitar.
(Probably throw this one to the back of the closet for some future date)

Your Gibson is a 2015 LP Standard SR. The SR's were having a narrower nut.

Have a look :

I didnt know that about the Sprint Run necks. In that case, the new titanium nut cant fit his guitar.

Roach, can you confirm what neck you have. The regular 2015s have a neck width of 4.5993 cm / 1.795" at the nut. Is yours smaller? and did you try to fit the titanium nut?

Guys I have a studio 2015 that did not have gforce system.


Yes i tried it and it was too big, then Gibson sent me two of the larger titanium nuts before they finally corrected this and sent the smaller one. That was the reason I had taken the picture. But the service person i dealt with was cool about it and the whole process was fast. There was no delay. I mean when I got the wrong one, it only took about 3 days for the next wrong one and another 3 -4 days to get the right one. So yes there is a titanium nut for both sizes, HOWEVER as you have seen from my posts, I am not so sure that the nut is NOT the cause of my problems. All i can say for sure about that is the brass nut was terrible, and proved to me the nut has a huge affect on the sound of the guitar. It sounded, well... brassy.... (silly but true!)


ill measure the neck and edit this post after the sun comes out and gives me some light...
