Titanium zero nut

I just saw a CL ad with a special edition Double cut Gibson LP with P90s and a titanium zero nut. I'm a huge fan of Tusq nuts and have them in most of my guitars. I was wondering if anyone has played a guitar with a titanium zero nut, or even owns one. And how they like it. Thanks.

I heard a lot of people complain about the zero nut, but they all just seemed to be complaining about them for aestetic reasons, I briefly played an single cut LP 2 years ago in store, I had no problems with it, but I only strummed a few chords and licks in 5 minutes maybe

Don't know about Titanium, but all my Steinberger basses have regular zero frets. I have heard that Gibson's regular zero frets were wearing out something fierce ... too much bending?!

Must have been a bear to finish that fret!! I have worked with titanium before, and you should just call it Tool Killer Metal. Most folks just use Stainless Steel, much harder than standard frets, but not crazy hard like Ti. All I can say is ... it better be set up right, or it will be crazy to fine tune.

Cheers!

Edit: the standard zero nut says Cryogenically Treated Brass, so this might be an aftermarket part. Still Ti is overkill. And for guitar, my favorite nut is TUSQ, but cut my first bone nut recently (in my Amusement Journal) and like it, too!

Thanks, Martinedwards.
Could I also ask why my posts have disappeared?
I made three different posts yesterday, and all have magically disappeared today (Melbourne time). Including the one that you replied to.

Is the site blocking my posts?
I'm confused

This is really bizarre.



I mentioned in your other thread, but I have brought this to the attention of those who know more about this sort of thing than I do.
