    go on e-bay and type in fender bass, i've seen all types listed for between 5.00 and 15.00 $
    some of the likes are as follows=ivory,graphite,PVC and brass, they are easy to come by and are fairly easy to ship by mail,
    installing ia another story in wich i've never read:bassist:
     
  3. You don't necessarily need a new nut; you can use you current nut and sand it down to the correct height, I think.

    When I had my bass converted to fretless, my luthier just cut deeper grooves in the nut.
     
  5. That's another alternative. :cool:
