Fig.1. The Nut

-The NUT has slots of different widths to accommodate the different size strings.  This allows the string to slide freely when being tuned.
-It can be made from a variety of materials such as plastic, bone, ivory, graphite and metal.
-The corners should be rounded to provide a smooth feel when you move your hand across it while playing.
-The Height determines the string height (action) at the low end of the fretboard.
