    Ok, i was shopping for nut replacement for Warmoth neck. They look like they should be Fender size 1 1/2 inches. Can i tell if the nut has curved bottom, or is flat with out removing it? Also, where can i get one, either tusq or bone, because Allparts and Musicians only have unshaped and unfiled, or shaped and pre-slotted. Warmoth does have the part, but charges a hardware minimum, making a 4 dollar part very expensive.
     
  2. Order something else with it to bump up the price. Surely they carry other items you can use. If not, it's not too early to start your Christmas shopping.

    Go on eBay. Sporthitech and Arkansasmusicworks carry what you want (graphtech nuts).

    The Graphtech nuts are excellent, but you will still have to do some slot filing and fitting. The one I got for my Strat was already radiused, pretty much a drop in fit.

    I have a unused Black Graphtech Tusq XL, if you need a fender jazz nut w/radius bottom.
    You can have it if you PM me your mailing address. I can drop it in an envelope and mail it Monday.
