Check out those string butler shirts
As long as the nut is cut properly with the right fall away and doesn't bind, yup.
Kiesel/Carvin, as well.
I think I'll mount one (with screws) to the headstock of my pre-war Martin D45.
There's two things to consider about those -
First, as many here have already mentioned, a properly cut, filed, polished nut will not require such a device, as the nut slots guide the strings to where they need to go.
Second, putting a device like that on a guitar that HAS a proper nut can cause some problems as NOW you are dragging the strings against the sides of the nut slots in a direction that they were not filed to guide the strings in. A proper nut doesn't have slots that are just perfectly straight back even slots. They are shaped specifically to the strings/guitar to provide a correct break point on the fretboard side and a smooth guide back from it towards the tuning machines. This "Butler" can create string bind, in that case, by changing the geometry of the "string and nut system."
Gibson should buy the company and make it an option on all their guitars.
