Can anyone recommend some nut files?
So here is the issue I'm trying to address. On my gibson sg's, I find the strings, particularly D and G strings, tend to catch in the nut.
I typically play the SG's in 3 possible configurations:
Standard tuning, with DR Tite Fit MT10, 10-46 gauge strings. 10 - 13 - 17 - 26 - 36 - 46
E flat tuning, with DR Tite Fit BT10, 10-52 gauge strings. 10 - 13 - 17 - 30 - 44 - 52 (this is my most common setup)
E flat tuning with Ernie Ball Power Slinky, 11-48 gauge strings. 11 - 14 - 18 - 28 - 38 - 48
I feel like I have problems on all 3 of my SGs with the D & G strings sticking/catching at the nut, regardless of what strings I use.
Should I look for a complete set of nut files, or should I just key in on the gauges I need?
Note: I also play Fender American strats, x4. I don't really have those issues on the Fenders, but it might not hurt to have the files on hand either.
So anyway, where should I look for files (ie good brand, etc), should I try to get a full set, and if I do file the nuts on my gibsons, should I file for the largest string I typically use in that slot, or would that cause issues should I a lighter gauge string?
Thanks in advance.
