Post Paul's guitar nut
I tried to post this last night but it was eaten by a cyber monster...lol.

Here's what i'd like to know:

Has PG ever mentioned why he didn't change the floyd nut on his favorite PGM ( the 300 converted to hardtail)?

I'm wondering if there is a reason he didn't change it or he just didn't want to bother with it. I have a RG550 that has the trem blocked(that way when i got it). I'm considering changing the bridge out as i didn't get the fine tuners on the bridge. The nut doesn't have the locking blocks on it so i'm sorta running it like PG.
I've seen on [email protected] a floyd nut conversion that screws/bolts in place and would then basically be a regular nut like the 301 in a sense.

thanks

I responded to the thread that was eaten. Lets see if I can remember what I posted.

I haven't heard him mention it. If he really liked the floyd nut more than a regular one he would probably have all his guitars made with floyd nuts.

If you prefer to have a regular nut go ahead and try the one on ebay. If the floyd nut is working fine, and the guitar stays in tune I personally wouldn't change it.

I dont know.

My guess is that it works just fine as is, and contributes to the resonance of the guitar.

I personally like the brightess a metal nut adds.

My post disappeared too. And it was a good one too damn it!

Anyway, I think the main point I tried to make was that Paul obviously likes the tone of that 300 with the lock nut still on it. Changing it out for bone, plastic, brass, or graphite, could change it's tone. If it ain't broke, don't fix it.

You could always try a different nut, and if you didn't like it, just put the original one back on. --Jason
