String Position Ruler

Written by Bill Quinn

ToneTech String Position Ruler.

Finding the position for the nut slots on a new nut can be fiddly. With the Tonetech String Position Ruler get accurate string spacing every time.

When Stringing a six string instrument, mark the positions of the low bass and high treble strings on the new nut.

Place the String Position Ruler across the nut so that there are exactly 10 spaces between the low bass and high treble marks.

The numbers on the ruler are there to help to count the 10 spaces

Now place a pencil mark on the nut in line with  every second space on the ruler.

The numbers appear on only every second mark on the ruler but it is OK to use any of the marks to position the two outer strings exactly.

String Spacing close up 800
