    Hello there all

    I was wondering if anyone here knows how to replace a nut on a Warwick Corvette 5? The plastic Just a Nut on it broke (the side clips) and I was going to try to replace with something a bit sturdier. Any suggestions on brands, materials, etc.?

    I have a few 5 string just a nuts from warwick, I think they are graphite and seem to be pretty sturdy. Only about ten bucks from a warwick dealer. As far as other materials, you could use brass, bone a solid piece of graphite or ebony(if you have a fretless). All you need is some nut files from stewmac and whatever material you choose and just copy the string spacing from your existing nut. Any of the above would be sufficient and I don't think you would notice a distinct difference in sound between the given materials when playing open strings. It's basically just a string spacer anyway. http://www.boydbasses.com
