  • Locking nut buzz

    Hello all,

    I have a slight buzz in my Kelly KE3 when I play the G string open.

    I have placed a small piece magazine paper just under the G string where it sits into the locking nut groove and the buzz has gone.

    Will filing down the nut groove work?

    What is the best way to eliminate this buzz, I don't want to look for bits of paper every time I change strings.

            <font color="red"> No the link is correct....

            Depends on the nut width of the neck you have....

            First one,Part # BN_0623-023 is for 1 5/8" nut widths

            Second one,Part # BN_0624-023 is for 1 11/16" nut widths
