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!
