Cutting bridge slots for strings


Recommended Posts

You have to space the strings to the high and low E strings are the right distance from the edge of the fretboard. The rest of the strings need to be proportionally spaced so the plain strings aren't too far apart and the wound ones aren't crowded (they are not just spaced equally center to center). Then the notches have to progress in size according to the string gauge, which is what the nut slot files are for. And the depth of each slot has to follow the fingerboard radius.


So, yeah, you should find a tech to do it properly. Not to be harsh, but you did suggest doing it with a knife.
