    Big Bends Nut sauce?

    I saw this at the store the other day and it said you're supposed to put it on the nut and it will help the strings slide smoothly or something.

    In all my years of playing I've never heard of greasing the nut, nor ever really had a problem with it. Is this something I am missing out on?

    Just wondering what it would actually do. It kinda sounds like blinker fluid. Heh. Does it help guitars play better, or what is the deal?

    Guthrie Govan uses it, so I'd say it isn't blinker fluid.
    ^ probably sarcasm.

    It's all a matter of personal taste. I use a nut lube on some of my guitars without graphteq nuts as it minimises strings bunching up and 'pinging' during tuning. If you have a non locking term it's a great idea as less friction on the nut means the tuning is more likely to return to pitch as there is nothing stretching or holding the strings any more than it needs to. It's useless on floyd locking nuts and LSR rolling nut types but works well on plastic and especially bone and brass nuts.

    Also if you bend a lot it helps with tuning stability.
