Hosco gauged double edged slotting files allow precise slotting of nuts, Tune-o-matic saddles and acoustic bridge saddles. Available in a large range of sizes and slightly wider slots can be made by rocking the file from side to side when filing the slot (e.g. the .010" slot can be used for a .011" string). Having specific file thicknesses makes slotting work considerably quicker, easier and more accurate.


File cuts on both edges
Specific file thicknesses take the guess work out of nut slotting
Also great for Tune-o-matic saddles and acoustic bridge saddles
Made in Japan
