    Got a used fender precision deluxe mexican bass.

    On A string nut is cut too deep/low and string is too close to fretboard at nut.

    I don't want to replace the nut.

    I've heard that you can build up the nut using a filler but I don't know what filler to use.

    Anyone done this and know what filler to use?

    Thanks

    Superglue works fine.

    +1 for superglue, works like a champ once it sets up.
