    It really sucks when a nut that's had 1-2 hours of work out in on it breaks or is catchy due to an inconsistency in the material.

    I Hulked out and bent it with my bare hands! The arm was extra long since the eggheads at FMIC moved the trem plate too close to the bridge :D

    I have installed 3 over the years. If you need a smooth nut they are great. The holes are tiny and not deep. Amazingly, all 3 (on Strats) required none of the shims they provide with the LSR. They were just right height without the shims. Tone on cowboy chords was fine too.

    I'm not convinced tuning issues with tremelo are the nut or tuners though. ....but deep dives maybe so.... for the nut anyway.

    Nut can certainly cause issues on vibrato use for me, tuners never unless the were actually broken or strung badly. Strings are moving enough on most guitars to catch on a bad slot on all but the most subtle detuning.

    That's just been my experience though.
