    Compensated Nut

    Just a quick question regarding the compensated nut.
    In short what size string gauge are they cut for ?
    I know that from factory they are shipped with a 100-45 gauge set.
    I currently use a 105-50 set with no problems.

    What is the maximum gauge possible to use before the files need to come out ? (Not that I plan on messing with it just curious to know as never tried anything heavier than stated)
    My second Stingray with a standard nut handles the BEAD 130-65 set

    Looking for the same answer, but in the mean time I've put a 110 E string on mine for drop d and it seems to be fine.

    Thanks for reply. That’s the conclusion I’m coming to. It’s currently got a 110-55 gauge set on it for D standard so I’m guessing not much more than that. Just interested to hear others experiences
