    Anyone swapped their Epi nut for a brass Gibson one?

    Gotta be easier to set the first fret action, surely....

    Ideas/opinions please.....

    Measure the height of the first fret, add the clearance you want. Put that amount of feeler gauge up next to the nut. File slot until the file just touches the gauge. Done.
