Nut broke on my Fender!

Discussion in 'Basses [BG]' started by Wattoosi, Feb 22, 2006.

  1. Eh, MIM Fender Zone bass... playing along, hit E string, kawang -- a piece of the nut broke right off.

    Suggestions (aside from Fender) to replace it??

  4. Any shop around you should be able to put a new nut in for you

    most of them i've been around have them around, and you wont have to order anything

    Graphtech nut from e-Bay. I've had 2 and they've never done me wrong. They're also precut!

    I used a graphtech nut on a project bass of mine a while ago, it was cut well and fit as expected.
  7. K, good, places to go! I called MF = not much help. So yeah there's the local store, I know all the guys, but always like to try to fix myself first :)
