about the name

Several of you have asked about the name "Between Nut and Saddle" and what it's all about. So, here's the short answer. Yes, it's a cheesy musical reference. On a guitar the nut and saddle hold the strings up off the fretboard. And so, it's between these two key items that music is created. More importantly, the space between the strings and frets is called the action. So, the cheesy answer is, between the nut and saddle is where the action is. Yeah, I know, I already said it. Cheesy. But, I like it. And it's a bit cryptic for those who don't know. So, there you have it. Between Nut and Saddle.
