My Nut...

  1. ...broke off today. I have a Ibanez EDB600 tuned BEAD, and I was stringing it up with a .130 on the bottom, and while winding it on with the string resting in the nut, it just came off. Thank god for wood glue though, everythings cool now. Just letting you know that I've come to realize lately that Ibanez is $#!+. As if a lot of you probably didn't know already. :)

    Ibanez being cheap doesn't really have anything to do with a nut coming off.

    Most makers put this on with a couple of drops of strong glue, and the nut comes off fairly easily if pressure is applied to it from the wrong angle, such as having a string that is too large for a slot going up over the top of the nut.
