Hello,
I am Carlos Juan Busquiel. I am a professional guitar maker in Spain. I make classical guitars.
I am recording some weekly tutorials in video. I speak Spanish, but I have translated the text and added subtitles in English in Youtube.
Here you have the third tutorial I have made, about nut making. They don't follow any order, as I use actual builds to make them, and each week I explain the process that I am woking on at that moment.
I hope you like it. Any feedback is well appreciated.
Best regards!
Carlos

¡Muy Bueno, Carlos!

I especially like how you emphasize the importance of the proper angle of the slot so that the string is in contact with the entire length of the slot. A lot of new builders miss that.

Thanks Pat!
Yes! very important. I have spent hours trying to find the cause of noises that were the result of a poorly made nut. They usually seem to come from the bridge!

Carlos,

Thanks for the tutorial. It was very helpful. I will be looking at your others on YouTube. By the way, where is Petrer?

Thanks,

Thanks for the comment, Max.
Petrer is a town in Spain, in the province of Alicante, very near the Mediterranean sea.

You use a triangular file to cut the nut slots? Not rounded files?
