Every new intsrument Iíve ever bought has has a high nut, presumably on the basis that itís easier to shave some off than to put some on, but itís actually quite easy to build one up. I have a 1915 Gibson mandolin that needed the nut raising by a miniscule amount and I simply stuck two layers of sticky backed paper beneath it. You wouldnít want to shim a bridge with sticky paper but itís fine for a nut.
