    Did I hear that right?

    Watching the new S2 videos on Youtube, they're talking about the materials used and on talking about the nuts, and they say brass "impregnated".

    That's something i've never heard before.

    Am I just behind the times?

    I'd like to hear more on this too, I must have missed what the guy said. First time knowing nuts can be impregnated with brass, but wouldn't that cause friction at the string slots if there's brass dust there?

    Anyone know if the pots are core or SE?

    The brass adds better tone and sustain. The synthetic material provides the slipperiness.

    The S2 pots are neither core nore SE. Just like the guitar models themselves, the S2 pots are their own animal.

    I know, the nuts are supposed to DO the impregnating, not get impregnated!?!?!?!

    Maybe it's all about boosting confidence. Courage. I'll just leave this here.

    So if you end up with 2 x S2s, does this mean you can say you have a pair of Brass nuts?
