Martin S-1 Problems at the Nut

  1. UkeyDave
    Hi Folks,
    I am a relatively new owner of a new Martin S-1 which I absolutely love.
    I am finding one problem though relating to the nut. The corner of this seems very sharp and I find myself catching the thumb side of my index finger on it when fretting and it is becoming quite painful. I notice on my other non Martin ukes that these edges have been slightly rounded and hence don't cause any problems.
    Should I use a nail file or something on it to take the sharp edge off?
    I love this Uke and don't want to damage it in attempting this.
    The shop I bought it from is over a 100 miles away so taking it back isn't an option and I wonder if for such a minor thing I could sort it myself.
    Has anyone else had this problem and if so how did they resolve it.
    I doubt I'm the only one having this issue.

    Funny how UU Groups tend to disappear into a black hole soon after they're started.

    Anyway, UkeyDave if you're still monitoring, did you solve the sharp nut edges? My S1 and OXK have the same issue.
