Hi all, new here after browsing and learning a hell of a lot. Thanks for having me, thanks for being there yada yada.

Just a quick question (I know I know)

Can anyone tell me the correct size of the brass nut on the TB1000S? I need to source one and they seem to come in 42mm / 43mm would a mm make a difference?

Thanks for helping, hope to have something to give rather than just take take take v. soon

Hello shinkiro

Welcome to the site! I would measure your neck at the nut to determine what size you need. The nut width varied throughout the production run, so there is no way to say what size yours will need.

I guess thats the logical thing to do, I am just a little slow about these things, and to be totally honest I am not sure what I am measuring.

I will have a go and see what comes out in the wash.

Thank you for the welcome, super happy to finally have one.

Well I measured as suggested and it turns out to be 39mm (dont know what you measure them in over there in the states, sorry). I have spent the last 2 weeks trying to source one and unless you want a 42 / 43 mm one you are basically stuffed.

Any suggestions would be greatfully received..

Cheers

I replaced the nut on my 1000S to take care of some tuning problems. I had the work done by a luthier here in Boulder. I opted for bone rather than brass (sacrilege I know) and has the guitar set up with the Buzz Feiten tuning system.

I'm sure you can get someone to make you a brass or bone (or aluminum) nut that will fit the guitar.

I wish, I have found one guy in the UK so far and he is asking about $180. It wouldn't bother me so much but its all original but spoiled by a cheap plastic nut.

Plan would be if I could find some to have a couple done, one in brass one in bone and one in graphite to see which works out best.

Thanks for your help anyhow, it's greatly appreciated.

Hey shinkiro,

$180 for a nut?????? That's just crazy!

I'll tell you what, contact me off the list at gggcbbb@yahoo.com and I'll see what I can do for you. I don't normally like to do really small projects, they take up a lot of my time, but I also hate to see people taken advantage of too. I'm sure I can do something you can live with.

Thanks,
Greg
