    They have the brass just a nut. Now a question... does this sit at the end of the fretboard, or in a slot on the fretboard, like fender?
  2. End of fretboard old bean! just like the old warwicks.
    and due to your added quote I had a look on the wish bass site and was err astonished to say the least, especially as he seemed to have a waiting list :eek:

    Alright. That is what I thought. I would have loved to hear this on my conklin with the wenge neck, but there is no way I am cutting the fretboard up!
  4. yeah I wouldn't either, to tell the truth if your bass is well set up there's no need to add it, and I think the sound is lessened by it as you lose some of the solid contact to the neck & fret board you get with a standard nut, spose it's good if you like to change your set up a lot?

    Heeyyy, I've got on of those. Came on my recently aquired 1992 Streamer...except mine was the color of poo. Polished it up and all, but...

    Was is supposed to fall off when I took the strings off? :eyebrow: Something tells me "NO".

    Anyone got any ideas for glue?

    A little tiny dab of super glue will hold it just fine. And if you do ever need to remove it, it is not too hard to break the bond.
  7. Could anyway explain to a some-what noob what that is, what it does, and where it goes?
  8. Damn, I sat here for 5 minutes staring at this post trying to come up with something smart-ass to say in response, but since I can't, i'll have to be a nice guy:

    Look at your bass, right in front of the first fret, there's a little "nut", like the white plastic thing in this pic:


    Warwicks used to use Brass nuts, which were pretty cool, so when someone noticed them for sale as an aftermarket part, they made this post.
  9. What I'd like to find is the Just-a-Nut-2, which is much more like the adjustable brass nut I had on my Alembic. Anyone know where I could find one of these?

    It'll fit on my washburn then.

    I'm sure brass would sound a whole lot better than the plastic nut thats on there?
  11. maybe, I think the warwick string spacing on a 4 string is 10mm center of srting to center of string with an overall nut width of 38mm.

    I liked the brass nut on my alembic so much that I made one for my SR5/ with a graphite neck. Almost sounds the highs are great and the natural ring of the note seems to last longer. But then again everybody can't go to their day gig and give their underlings an auto Cad drawing of what they want and tell them when they want it. But off/track.. I would personally put a brass nut on anything I played out. That is my humble opinion and I know others will have their own which is cool.

    I've had brass nuts made for all my basses since my Ric in 1987 (well the 2 newest came with them, no upgrade needed)
