You could also try Big Bends Nut Sauce.

Although be careful about how much you use -- it's messy and can get all over your guitar if you use too much.

Or you can save lots of money (and mess) by using ChapStick. It works really well and costs very little, although you do need to figure out how to apply it. I just put a little on the tip of a fingernail, then smooth some into the groove on the nut. For the bridge, I simply use 3in1 oil applied with a wooden cocktail stick.

Another great thing about ChapStick is that it doesn't stain the nut or the wood surrounding it.


I wish this forum had a "block user" feature. Possibly I'm not the only one......
