    There’s probably something positive to be said for both. Some nuts are not well made or installed so removing it and filing it flat to ensure that the base of the nut sits well on the neck has merit; filing out each slot removes other variables in manufacture. Filing slots ensures that the string does ‘break’ on the edge of the nut and that the slot width is a good fit.

    In general I just leave the nut in place and file the slots to suit; that particular ‘solution’ works for me (I have the simple skills and tools to do the job, the adjustments are ‘customised’ to each string, and in my estimation the results have been very good).
