Hello from GeorgeBoards™ we are making SX 6 ash RetroFit parts now. Palm Bender Video << Click

We purchased a SX 6 Ash from a forum member -thank you-
to design our RetroFit parts to convert your SX 6 ash from a load of guitar parts into a playable Steel Guitar.

I gotten a lot of requests from folks that want to convert their SX 6 ash and here it is.

Static Nut Replacement - with this alone you can install in less that an hour - low cost.
True 3/8 spacing - Graduated notches deep enough for heavier strings.

Sounds great George. Like the professional retrofitted nut and bridge. Affordable upgrade for a much better sound.

Thanks for the input Brad,

20 each part static and 25 each part roller, 6 shipping usa.

Some photos of the nut and bridge areas will help me make sure my parts will fit.
This Ash I bought to measure from is the only SX I have inspected.

I've also made plexiglas measuring sticks for Super easy fast accurate placement of these GeorgeBoards parts.

Bump for GeorgeBoards recent upgrades for the SX.

Check out the new nuts, saddles and the bender system. Cool!
