    Anybody know where I can buy a new nut for an old Gibson EB-O bass?

    **Must hold back***

    Lots of online suppliers... Stew Mac, All Parts, Warmoth... No place local you can get one through?

    Those places all carry blanks, but I need one ready to go. Maybe I'll have to find somebody to make me one...

    You should be able to go to a local music store. They'll do it. I got a new bone nut for 36 Canadian. And it made a difference too.

    Seems like any competent local luthier ought to be able to measure and cut you a new one. Even if you have to order a blank one yourself, there should be someone who can do the precision work without too much trouble.
