So I recently bought the wonderful RG652ahm which plays and sounds amazing,
ButÖ it seems that the nut doesnít quite cover the whole surface of the nut seat/slot. As you can see in pictures #3 and #2, the surface from the nut area and fretboard is exposed (mostly the binding). Especially the treble side.
*And the holes arenít off center either.
To make sure, I compared this nut to the one on my RG2550, and just as I suspected, its a tad bit shorter. See picture #5.
I measured it and itís not exactly 43mm - just a bit off - more like 42.7mm
I briefly switched the nuts on both guitars for further comparison ó and the nut from my RG2550 seemed to be a better fit for my RG652. The 652 nut on my 2550 was obviously not a perfect fit. See pictures 6,7,8, and 9.
- Any thoughts? -
Could it also be that the nut width on this particular RG652 is a bit wider than it should?
Because the width at the nut on my RG2550 does look and feel a bit narrower.
And although itís more of a cosmetic thing, it does bother me a bit, especially since I did spend $1500 on this.
- Would you guys consider this defective? -
