Swollen nut?

guitar is suddenly pinging when I tune it, for the first time. Can a bone nut possibly swell in hot, humid weather?

not really, no.

more likely a groove has worn in it to where the string is sitting down in that groove and pinching.

could even just be a bit of dirt or corrosion on the string making it drag a little.

Ya. Bone, if it is really bone, is pretty stable.

I had a bone and wondered if I had a swollen nut once. My wife helped me with it....


She has better eyesight. It was wearing a groove down.
