I don't usually need help in repairs, but this is one of those times.
I have a Yamaha RBX375, and I've been working on fixing the battery clip. (Still looking for my solder. :o ) That is not the problem, though. The other day, my 4 y.o. was messing with it, and I noticed something didn't sound right. The B string was kind of dead. I looked at it, and noticed the nut had broke at the middle of the slot, and that piece was on the floor. :eek:
Would it be feasible to glue it back in place for now, or should I just replace the whole thing? If glue is an option, which would be best, crazy glue or epoxy (or other) ?
Looking for the cheapest method for now, and it will be replaced at the earliest opportunity.
Thanks for any advise.
I'd use super glue - shouldn't be a big deal. You want a clean glue joint with no bleed-out of the glue. I'd also clean the surfaces with denatured alcohol and test fit it a couple of times before gluing it, so I could be confident that I'd insert the piece in exactly the right place.
Yeah super glue will do fine. I once fixed a Strat nut with the tube of Krazy Glue with the little plastic pin applicator and ten seconds later good as new.
Thanks, guys. I think I have some here somewhere, but if not, I can get some. :bassist:
Fresh super glue performs better than old stuff. If it's over a year old I chuck it.
