Nut Slot height

1 : Set Step Gauge (Nut Slot part) in the string slot which you want to check, and then put Step Gauge

(2 legs) to contact a fingerboard.
Slide the gauge to headstock keeping both legs contacting a fingerboard. Step Gauge will stop when the gauge contacts nut slot.

2 : Read the number on the nut. Number is 10 times of mm. So devide by 10.
ex. 10, 10/10=1.0mm

Caution ! : If the leg is floating from fingerboard. Slide back the gauge until both legs contact a fingerboard again.
