Thread Name: Tech: Zero Frets
Subject: RE: Tech: Zero Frets
Most guitars don't have wooden nuts, but rather bone or imitation bone (tusq, micarta, or plastic - on electric guitars some other variations too such as graphite and graphtex). These things are likely harder than wood, but not, I imagine, harder than steel. Is fretwire steel? It seems to me that fretwires are softer these days than they used to be....
