This is because the machine's meticulous attention to detail identifies exactly what needs to be done to bring you perfect fretwork. It's an innovative machine that brings you flawless results.

Additionally, a bone nut is a luxury addition to acoustic instruments, it brings balance to your tone whilst being long-lasting, and superbly durable.
