I really beat the hell out of my bass when I play it. I can't help it. So I broke a string the other day, and when I took them off, I noticed that in between the first few frets there are marks from the E string rubbing. The metal on the groves on the nut and bridge also have marks from the E string. I was cleaning it while the strings were off, and the nut came off. Their seems to be little adhesive used to hold it judging from the residue. Anyone have a recommendation as to what adhesive to use to reattach it? I am a bit nervous about putting it back on, because I am afraid that it might not line up perfectly with the fretboard. Is there a method for lining the nut up when reattaching it, or do I just eye it up evenly on both sides? All of this has got me thinking that I should alter my playing style a bit so I don't abuse the bass quite as much. Would the nut come off from playing too hard? Thanks for your time.
