As a few people have now asked about replacing that pretty awful Urea nut that is fitted to the revstar range of guitars I thought it would be useful to post this info.

The only model of revstar that comes with a good quality TUSQ nut is the top of the range RSP20CR and as all the revstar range share the same nut dimensions it would make sense to order the part for the RSP20CR and fit it to whatever model guitar you own.

So these are the details you need:

TUSQ XL BT-6041-00 43mm(Bl)
Part Number: WU137900

In the UK this can be ordered from http://www.sontec.co.uk
Not sure if they ship abroad but always worth asking.

Also one of our forum visitors from Spain emailed me to ask about this and he was able to use the info above to order a replacement on Ebay https://ebay.es/usr/gtr-music at a cost of about 16 €, (19 US $) including taxes and postage.

Hope that helps someone?

Brilliant, the solution served on a plate. ((i))

This relatively easy upgrade should improve the sound and sustain.

Yeah I think it is definitely the first thing I would do if I had bought a revstar.

Many thanks for this info. I've got a lovely 620 in Brickburst. I've just done an ebay UK search and gtr-music are UK based (https://rover.ebay.com/rover/1/710-5348 ... olid=20008) I've just paid £10.99 for the BT-6041. I'll report back when it arrives.
Cheers
Mike
