    I Brought a Fired up Bass Guitar and replacing parts that have been melted.
    But the NUT was Cracked and Broken
    so Measured it and got the one that is nearest to the size as i could

    NT-040
    Right Size and Width and i think i measured one of the holes and matched up.
    but the Slop on it is puzzzeling me
    If i have the Big Groove on the top of the guitar (as you hold it) then the slop will be going down to the Turners

    My other bass (P-Bass Jim Haxley) just seems to have a Badly filed down flat looking one
    And my Strat Copys all have flat ones just taking the strings

    -----------------------

    Also got suggested to get Graphite
    Graphite is the thing you use in Pencils right

    Fired up? As in the bass was in a burning building?
    Stay away from instruments like that- the wood is dried most likely to the point of seasoned kindling.
    I had a guitar like that I sold it for short money. It was toast.

    Replacing a nut is not as simple as literally just replacing it. The new nut needs to be shaped and the slots need to be cut for the correct string gauge.
