That's terrible I don't think a proper luthier would pass that off I'd take it back mate it looks like it's been done with a dremel as the material is marked and looks rough on the edges almost like melted but it is hard to tell just from the picture

String slots arn't straight, and the nut looks a little wide... Hope they didn't charge you!

Bang on, a very poor effort frankly.

That’s a nasty looking bit of work. Your strings are going to catch when tuning, especially on the G.

That looks a bit of (cheap) plastic, and the work dosen`t look very professional. I know the image is a bit magnified but.. i don`t know if you can call that señorluthier. I think that depends on the context. Was this charged as low cost and fast solution or as premium service? Nonetheless, that might be a perfectly funcional nut.

Awful, slots not straight, blank too wide for neck so all slots shifted towards treble side with nut overhanging, G and D slots close to same width.

The windings will stick on the angled slots making tuning troublesome.

Is this what was fitted direct from 'he who cannot be named'? If so, that is very poor but the good thing is it's very easy to fix ( not that you should have to )
