My 12 y.o. son accidentally broke the nut on his Squier J. It is split right at the G string and broke off from there. I imagine that we have to replace the nut. We have read this tutorial http://www.talkbass.com/forum/showthread.php?t=282825 . A couple of questions; - Can novices really pull this off successfully? - How do we know the correct nut size to get? Where can we find it? - We had also considered stringing it BEAD. Do we understand that you use the strings as a file to re-size the nut grooves for BEAD? Thanks a lot, guys!
