It involves removing the nut, which while not difficult, has to be done carefully.


Removing the nut is 100 times easier than filing nut slots IMO.

thanks for pointing that out beatlefreak. it looks like i do have an older versoin of the manual. i did use a very crude version of a micrometer last night and from what i could tell my string gauges are the #95511 set.

cheyennell--i'm in a pretty similar position as you, i don't know of any good ric luthiers around here, though i know of a good guitar tech/guitar builder/luthier. i'm not sure what kind of experience he has with RIC's but i'm sure he knows what he's doing when it come to dealing with the nut. which is the only thing i'm considering having professionally altered. othere than that, i am just learning by trial and error, as you said.

Any good luthier should be able to help you with the nut. Take the guitar to him, discuss what you want to have done, and see what he recommends.
