    My P Bass' nut is broken on the G string side. I have an uncut blank nut, but I don't know how to get the old one off. Any suggestions?
     
  2. Easy - take a pair of pliers with a flat nose - simple slip joint pliers will do - and hold them vertically, pointed down over the nut. Grasp the nut firmly in the middle between the A and D string slots and pull up gently. In most cases the nut will ease out of the slot with only a little wiggle. Don't wiggle too much or you'll break it.

    Hope this helps...
