    Hey there, does anyone know how to attach a nut to the neck of my guitar - the original nut split so i bought a new one. Does it need to be glued in or just slotted in???

    Thanks in advance

    If you have to ask you might be better off taking it to a shop, at least the first time you have it done.

    Ahh man. There's only one way that things comin' off of there, and it aint pretty. How'd you get your nuts attached to the neck anyways?


    What he said, I'm pretty sure that's something best left to someone with the correct tools for the job. Not sure, but I think those grooves have to be cut to very specific depths.

    The man said it all. I have a rule, I will repair a guitar that the owner has had a go at once. If he has a second go and fucks something else I refuse to take it. I don't have the patience to be nice anymore.

    when it takes more then a screwdriver to do the job :

    have it done by an expert!!!

    and even some screwdriver jobs are best left to pros.

    Dont you have to also file the grooves just right? I would never attempt anything like that unless I knew what the hell I was doing. Man, take it to the shop.

    Depends on how low you want the action and whether the it is grooved to begin with.
