    The TalkBass iphone/android app is NOT WORKING currently. We're working on it. Tapatalk IS working, so if you need to use an app, use Tapatalk. Try using your browser though - TalkBass is now 100% responsive to your phone/tablet screen size ;)

    I was just doing a string change and the nut broke at the E string. I am attempting to glue it together with carpenters glue. Think this will work?

    Or will s regular Fender style work? The nut needs to be glued in like a Gibson style, but looks almost like a fender style nut.

    Or do I need an actual Yamaha nut?

    Use CA glue. Wood glue is for wood/wood glue-ups.

    Get a precut nut and file it for the particular bass.

    *If* it's a clean break, and you haven't schmutzed it up w/Elmer's or something, thin CA may work.

    No nut, "needs to be glued in", other than to keep it from falling of the instrument, when you change strings.
