I can't remember if anyones asked this, but does anyone in SA supply these nuts ?
No-one supplies them locally - he mostly sells directly from his website http://www.earvana.com
. For the acoustic nuts, you have to shorten your fingerboard a little as they must be a bit closer to the bridge than a normal nut. It's an easy thing for a pro - but does take a pro (or at least a very handy person with no fear) to do it.
I've been considering ordering one for my Godin.
Bear in mind, the retrofit model I fitted is a reversible mod, but if I were to do it again I'd fit the OEM model, which fits into the same size slot as an LSR roller nut and is a neater looking unit. So you might want to consider having an OEM one fitted, rather than the retrofit.

Alans guitar is looking sweet, im waiting for him to finish it then im gonna go steal it hehehe
I have finished - just tweaking setup, touching up frets, etc. If you stole it, you might not even like it - it's very idiosyncratic, being built for my odd tastes. The neck is real chunky (a "real man's" neck, LOL) - thicker at the nut than a Clapton or Beck model. The Tele bridge is also not for just anyone either - many find they get in the way of the picking hand. Without a pickguard, most plectrum players would destroy the finish below the neck and middle pickups in no time too.
Actually that would make a great prize for the next competition ... What d'ya say Allan??
