Thread: Making new bone nut baritone ukulele

    Default Making new bone nut baritone ukulele

    Im making a new bone nut for a mid-60s laminate baritone ukulele I refurbished - New bridge and saddle, refinished. The string spacing at the nut is 3/8 between strings. Since the D and G strings are wound, should I cut the slots for the wound strings with 7/16 spacing?

    Not sure if this is an issues on ukuleles, even with 2 wound strings.

    To do that your nut will have to be 1 3/4" wide..I'd just measure 1/8" from the nut end for the D & E strings and space them equally, as your fingertips rest on the centre line of the strings not the spaces.

    If you can believe that moving images and sound, can fly through empty space across the universe and be seen and heard on a box in your living room ?.. then you can believe in anything.
