Paul,

She looks like a keeper. The nut doesn't look too low to me. Maybe too high? Here is something I found online: "The string slots for fretless banjo nuts should be of a depth that holds the string slightly above the finger board. The clearance should be no more than the thickness of a business card."

Or maybe try a few bridges of different heights. They aren't too difficult to make. Or make one really tall one and keep shortening it until you hit the sweet spot.

Good luck and let us know how it goes!
