Comments about Graph Tech TUSQ XL 1/4" Epiphone Slotted Nut - Aged White:
I installed one of these on my Epiphone Masterbilt DR-500MCE because I had problems with the strings hanging up in the original nut. It's fairly easy to do, but a little time consuming. Removal of the old nut is easy. Just score around it with an sharp knife to keep from chipping the lacquer, and give it a gentle tap with a small hammer and wood block. It took me about 2 hours total to get the new nut to the spec I needed and installed. I WOULD HIGHLY RECOMMEND using a digital caliper for measuring, since a millimeter one way or the other can make a world of difference in the action and tone. Don't forget to run some fine grit sandpaper through the string grooves to smooth any rough edges.
I was pleasantly surprised with the end result. Not only did it take care of the sticky string problem, It stays in tune better, and the tone improved considerably. The guitar sounded great before,but it now has a clarity it previously lacked. I'll be installing TUSQ XL nuts on my other guitars.
