Does anyone use or know what the little bar made of metal or brass that clips on the end of an acoustic guitar right past the nut is called and who makess it? I have seen a few guys have them like laurance juber and a few others,i have read that it helps for sustain and over tone on an acoustic guitar.

Thanks Roger thats kind of the same but the one i am referring to is about maybe a 1/2 wide or so and you can put it on the back side of the nut and it clips around the back of the neck,kind of like a capo but i believe it puts pressure on all 6 strings behind the nut for more vibration and sustain.

That's why the old Gibby's had a 17o headstock pitch.More ring(volume)and sustain.Only problem with slanting the strings too much is that the nut slots have to be perfect or the strings will stick in the nut for sure.May not be too much of a problem though on an acoustic.Another advantage of sharp breakover is the nut slots can be lowered due to increased string tension. The best, Ty M.
