Fantastic
Nick1995, 04.01.2021
Got it to replace the plastic nut on my sST20 HSS. Super easy install. It was a bit bigger as suggested by the packaging - just sanded it down and got it fitted in 15-ish minutes. Being a complete amateur I'd say it was very easy and quick.
String spacing was a bit different from that on the stock nut for the ST20 - but that ended up being a nice surprise as I do prefer it as it is now and it still fit perfetctly fine within the fretboard.
Won't comment on tone etc as many much more capable have confirmed how much better it is and comparing to a plastic nut would be useless anyhow.
Overall - got it along with stringtrees from graphtec as my first ever products from the brand. Can 100% recommend them based on this experience - items are great and as described + packaging it great.

Easy to use
Strings in the snow, 18.03.2021
Got this as upgrade for the cheap plastic nut on a Squier Bullet Mustang. It was already almost a perfect fit for the slot, straight out of the packet – a little bit of attention with some abrasive paper (to slim the sides and shape the bottom to the radial curve) was all that was needed. There's been a noticeable improvement to the tone of the strings when played open, and the tuning (with the stock machines still installed) is now rock-solid. Great outcome from very little effort.

Great for maximum tuning stability
Pkxyz, 11.10.2020
I installed the Graph Tech Nut on my Ibanez GIO, replacing the mediocre plastic nut on said guitar. Installation was relatively easy, I had to file away a bit of material to install the nut. The resulting dust gets everywhere, so best do that close to a bin or in a workshop, not on your desk. Also, while filing, it smelled rather bad, kind of like a mixture of hot tar and gasoline. After filing the nut to the necessary height and installing it, tuning stability improved massively, and the tone of the guitar became less tinny. A small, easy mod with great effect. Would definetely recommend the Graph Tech nut as a replacement for the standard plastic nuts on most guitars.
