Part 4 : Measuring String Height and Spacing

In this video, Jimmy finishes installing the tuning keys. He then begins work on the bone nut. He measures, cuts, and installs the nut, and then he grooves out the nut for the strings. Now the guitar is ready for its first strings and first sounds. Once the guitar is strung and tuned, Jimmy makes the final adjustments to string spacing at the nut, bridge, and saddle. He then adjusts and measures the string height at various places on the guitar neck.
