Earvana Drop-in compensated nut for Gibson® guitars 1-11/16"
Really Is Amazing
I have installed several of these on my customer''s axes. I liked it so much, I installed one on my LPs. What the Earvana nut does, in reality, is compensate (make up for) too much finger pressure being used in the first few playing positions. The Earvana''s mathematically staggered cut-off points compensate for typical manufacturing problems by making each string a better ''compensated'' length, not perfect, just better, which really makes a difference. It seems to work best on mt LP with a normal light gauge .010-.046'' set of strings I''d like the Earvana nut more if the manufacturer removed the pointy corners and made it out of Graphtech Tusq. But it''s easy enough to file the corners yourself.Reviewed by: Dean Forman from Coventry, RI United States. on 5/6/2011 2:29:00 AM
It is another viable tempered tuning system.
T''is another way to temper the tuning on a guitar with an unwound G string. So if you play with wound G this won''t work very well. If you have a long scale SJ200, Dove, H bird, I''d also avoid this. I have yet to try this on any 25 5/16'' scale Gibson, nor am I likely to any time soon. Most Gibsons are 24 3/4'' or less scale. This type of design dates back to an adjustable nut featured on Microfrets guitars. I set those similar to this system using a Peterson 5000. You can use any tuner to set this up, as long as it will show cents +/- pitch. Some filing of the corners and edges makes this feel nicer. Aside from that it is OK. I like Graph Tech''s tusq material. I am Feiten System certified + a degree in theory, & I would stick with the scale(s) designed for your nut. Is this the best? A subjective question indeed!Reviewed by: Seth from Arizona. on 10/6/2012 4:23:00 PM
