The end of my nut broke off, what's the strongest darn glue you recommend to use?
Depends. What kind of material? Plastic or bone I'm guessing. You could probably just use an epoxy. A quick set would be the best. Other would be super glue and an accelerator.
Unless you're in a jam and you need a quick fix to keep playing right away, have the entire nut replaced (or, if your handy, replace it your self). Otherwise, what tufnuts said.
I'll second the replacing the nut option. I replaced the nut on my G&L and it's pretty easy. Just take a razor knife, and make a gentle cut at each end of the nut. Pry one end up gently. When you replace it, don't glue the entire surface, but only the ends.
2 components glue.
I use scotch tape.
wouldn't you want something like stiches?
Sorry! Couldn't resist!
To glue your nut I would say super glue. It was developed for Dr's to close sutures or so I've heard.( I'm not a Dr and I don't play one on T V.) Be careful you don't get any on your fingers unless you want your hands stuck in your pants for a while.
On the other hand, to repair a bass guitar nut, epoxy should work fine depending on the repair. If you are replacing a small chunk, super glue may work for a while, but I don't have much faith in it over the long run. Never use epoxy to replace a nut. ie- To stick the new nut to the guitar.
