The original nut spacing on this Musicman was very odd. It was inconsistently spaced string to string and the G was pushed in too far from the edge of the board. Along with those issues, the bass came in with small paper shims in each slot in an attempt to minimize open string buzzes. We went for a new properly spaced bone nut to bring the bass back to prime playing condition. I love the thump of a Musicman pickup.
