    Help me quick. I have a warwcik corvette 4 string. I was ajusting the a just a nut slightly. I put them low down, then went to bring the hole nearest the e string and it went up fine. but then when i went to put the hole nearest the g string up-nothing. Am i doomed?

    No im talking about the nut. On warwicks they are adjustable. I wanted to see if i could lower mine a little bit. Lowered it too much and it must have ripped up the thread in there. I think i only need to replace the part of the nut that varies in height. Does anyone know where to get one/ how much they will cost?

    call dana b goods, the US distributor. When i setup my bass some of those adjustors were broken, called them and they sent them free of charge.

    it took me about a week and a half because i think they are in Cali and live in MS.

    Thanks for your help abark and everyone. the problem is i am in the UK so would i just be able to contact MAD (the UK equivelant of DBG) and ask them. Do you think regular music shops have replacement nuts?
