OM-18V Nut job!


Yes, well. My OM-18V is a wonderful thing. However one thing that has irritated me is the nut slots being cut so that the top and bottom strings are so damn’ near the edge of the fingerboard causing pull-offs on the top ‘e’ string not to ring true. It also causes the fleshy part of my palm just beneath the index finger to foul the top ‘e’ on certain chords. I finally lost patience and took the guitar down to Jimmy Egypt in Glasgow to have the nut replaced. I also took this opportunity to have him install a K&K Pure Western Mini pickup so that I can plug in when I need to. I’m not a fan of pickups on (acoustic) guitars but not to put one on would limit the places I can play and I can’t afford to do that.

I’m picking the guitar up tomorrow at Jimmy’s place. I’ll let you know how I get on.
