    Does anyone know the measurements for this 5-string bass' nut?I came up with 43mm width but i've found others stating 42.5mm, plus I have no clue as to the other measurements that need to be done & i don't wanna screw this up.I've already contacted Yamaha with no response as we speak.If i know what i'm looking for then i can buy the nut & give the bass to a luthier to fit it in.Thing is i'm in a hurry as i have rehearsals & recordings to attend.
    Thank you in advance!

    Just bring it to your repair guy and let him provide the nut blank. It'll be the quickest option. You're over thinking it and wasting time trying to find this info. ;)
