I am posting here because I am looking for a quick response. Sorry... Happy Thanksgiving everyone.... Ok so here is my question. I just got a call from my luthier. He just informed me that my D string broke while installing my new brass nut he was custom making me. He is telling me that he needs to put a new set (Rotosounds) on the bass for 30.00 and then charge me again to set it up. (I just had the bass less than a week ago there for a setup in the first place... and purchased new strings then SR2000s). My question is this: Should I have to purchase new strings and a new setup, or should the luthier pay for it. My bill for the new nut and fret polish is $80.00 and he is saying that I will need to pay another $60.00 for the new stings and setup. One other fact: He said the string broke between the new nut and the tuning screw. Logic says to me that is because the nut he installed was too tight of an opening for the string and the string could not freely move across the nut and the tension was too great between the nut and the tuning screw. Thanks in advance for your answers.... Once again ..... Happy Turkey Day!
