How come when I take a picture the reflection I get does not look like a metal fret?

Maybe I need to put my Waterloo in the background. Seem to get a lot of reflection off the truss rod cover screws.

Andy Powers May not be playing a zero fret but it sure doesnít look like your standard graphite nut.

Not that unusual, but I canít stand feeling cramped on my fretting hand down near the capo. I think this position is theoretically best from a tuning standpoint, though to be honest I canít remember the advantage touted by its advocates.

Really? I never heard to place a capo directly on a fret. Always thought it was directly behind the fret bar.

Yeah, thatís the way I do it too, but there have been a few threads on this and the on-the-fret capo has advocates here.

So is this what people mean by a "boxy" guitar? [emoji6]

I checked out the photo on the Fretboard Journal Instagram feed and it’s easier to see there that it’s a black nut, along with black truss rod cover screws.

It will be much more clear when you get to see and play the guitar first-hand — but you don’t have to take my word for it.
