    Yep they "look" ok but as I went back to double-check what model you had, I had a vague recollection of reading at least one report that one of the little things about the NS re-issues was that nut slots were one thing that could stand a tiny bit of "clean up", as in they could use just a little smoothing with a file even though deep/wide enough.
    Could be wrong but usually have pretty good memory about little things like that.
    If the slot lube doesn't seem to work that could be a reason.

    Yup. NS Guilds often need nut work, though itís usually minor.

    Ok tnx. I will file them a little and put some bends big bends sauce on it and the on the bridge.

    Do you think the new roller saddles will fit properly and will help?

    Many people don't like the roller bridges, If you want movement for a bigsby consider an aluminum Sorkin or etc. They sound good and rock back and forth just a bit. Another idea is the Gretsch guys are into the Bigbys and bridges more than probably any other group. Check Gretch Talk threads
