When you fret the string at the 3rd fret, you should just barely see light under the string at the first fret. Old school measure is a cigarette rolling paper thickness. Double that for a low G string.

Download the full-size pdf version of my nut slotting guide from the Uke construction page of my website.

72510

The actual "ideal" measurement is based on actual setup which does not rely on a specific numerical value.
