New strings - new nut?

    Dumb question:

    If a bass comes with gauges of 45-65-85-110,
    and one has found strings they really like in gauges of 43-56-70-100...

    should the nut be replaced for proper and/or best set-up with the new, lighter gauge strings? :confused:
     
  2. the nut should be alright...you'll probably just have to tweak the truss rod slightly to compensate for the lighter gauge
