It only take a few minutes to install with absolutely no permanent alteration to your instrument. Zero fret wire included (multiple sizes). Comparison Standard Nut Zero Glide Open String Tone Absorbs energy. Fret reflects energy, making the open strings more vibrant. Tuning Friction causes string binding. 93% less surface area. More accurate tuning. String Bend/Whammy Bar Whammy bars and string bends cause the strings to bind in the nut and not return to pitch Reduces string binding and "returns to zero" after every tug of the whammy bar or bend Intonation Large pitch deviation in early frets. (See intonation graph below) Minimal pitch deviation in early frets.
