10-52's in EB compensated nut?

10-52's in EB compensated nut?

Hello all.

I’m currently considering purchasing a guitar fitted with an EB compensated nut, and have a question regarding it’s compatibility out of the box with heavier gauge string sets. I play heavy bottom strings (10-52). I have searched google for the past hour as to whether or not the nut slots need to be widened to accommodate the larger wound strings, and have read through quite a few posts on this forum, but I have not been able to find a truly definitive answer.

So, those of you with first hand experience playing these compensated nuts, will a 10-52 set fit without filing the nut slots or not?

Thank you in advance for any replies. It’s much appreciated.
