    I just bought a 1984 Warwick Streamer! http://www.talkbass.com/forum/images/smilies/smile.gif
    It has a Wenge thru neck, a cherry body, and a Wenge fret board with EMG pickups and a brass just-a-nut1.

    Problem is that the screw under the Estring in the nut is stuck and mangled.http://www.talkbass.com/forum/images/smilies/frown.gif

    any suggestions for how to get it out (will WD-40 hurt the wood?)?
    Any ideas for where to get a replacement screw?
    Does anybody know the thread size of the screw? Maybe I could buy a regular screw and turn down the head or something.

    Hmmm.
    I'm new...clearly I don't know how to use the smiles...sorry
     
  3. Don't put a "regular screw" a "Mickey Mouse" fix! :eek:

    -Any liquid product you use to remove the stuck piece MUST NOT come in contact with the wood.

    Mask the area off throughly.

    -Contact Warwick re: replacement of part.

    Dale Titus should be able to help you find out about all things Warwick:

    DaleT@danabgoods.com

    -In a worse-case scenario you can have the nut replaced with an ABM Height Adjustable Brass Nut for Bass available at

    www.allparts.com (search "brass nut")

    Call or e-mail allparts for best match.
    :D

    i wouldn't worry about it...dale is an awesome guy to work with and it shouldn't be a problem getting a new just-a-nut I...just give him a call. the abm would be a pretty neat piece, though.
