(first of all, did everybody leave town this week?! This board hasn't been this quiet since the minute it started....) But I digress
On the bench is a Peavey strat-copy with an amazingly frustrating intonation problem. After pulling out a lot of hair (and there wasn't much left anyway), I determined the problem was the poorly-cut nut slot, slightly canted toward the bass strings, in relation to the frets.
The fretboard is maple, so I'd hate to have to fill the slot and cut it over again from scratch. So the question to the troops is: has anybody had any luck making compensated nuts? I'd like to try, say, a reverse overhang (toward the tuners) to allow the too-short bass strings some more "breathing room". All thoughts greatly entertained and appreciated.
PS: have a wonderful Thanksgiving, folks!
