    I'm not understanding your problem w/your Spector.

    Nut not on the bass? Where is it? Where is the string starting to unwind?

    the nut as in where the strings rest on.
    and it is unwinding where it goes around the pole for the turner.
    the strings don't matter but what about the nut?

  4. Why not have the nut adjusted or repaired and restring the bass?

    Seems easier than tossing it for a new bass no?

    all i have to do is to walk into te music store and walk out with the other bass. that isn't that hard.
    i will try to fix the nut. and i hope to get new strings.

    Thanks for explaining to what a nut is. :rolleyes:

    Did it magicly disappear? did you buy it without the nut? Did you buy the bass mail order? Did the nut fall off? Did you eat the nut? Be alittle less vauge, why don't you.

    G&L basses are great basses. I've played a few of the early 80 SB-2 & I think they're great basses as well. I own an '83 L-2000 & I wouldn't sell it for the world.

    BTW, what model Spector do you have?

    Nuts arent really permanently affixed. They're just glued on most of the time. If it's falling off(if that's even the problem) just use a little carpenters glue. Problem solved. Oh and factory strings usually suck.
