2008 Martin D-41 Special [4.8 lbs] :: junky nut tuning woes
Boston guitarist Jon McAuliffe stopped by the shop recently as he was having tuning issues. After inspecting the nut I found a few of the slots had been filled with a soft material at one point. Luckily there was enough string clearance to file through the junky fill into solid bone without any open string rattles. While working on the guitar I found that the leads for the pickup's sound hole mounted volume control had completely broken free. The wires were re-soldered and hot-glued to the volume module before reinstalling it back into the guitar.
