    Hello. How can I tell if my nut slots are not deep enough? I suspect that my action, at least on the bass side may be a little too high at the first fret. But to some degree, the relief and bridge height would affect this as well yes? So how can I know how low the slots should be? Guitar is a 1998 ES-165.
