Nope, though I would sometimes take one in an alternative tuning, and I always had my lap steel.
FWIW, an after market esoteric nut is a solution to a problem that doesn't exist, and a great way to convert your money into someone else’s.

A way back in the day, I used the Gibson ES330 exclusively, no back up! After I got the Spectrum ST in '85 the Gibson was retired from stage work and I added an Ovation 1983 Collectors Edition.
I used these two consistently for nearly 15 years--no backups! Never had a problem with the Ovation. Smacked into more mic stands and cymbals than I can count, and I don't think I even busted a string on the Westie! Bloody tough guitar!
