Well, it's kinda funny that with all of the stuff I've done to guitars, I've never replaced a nut. Anyways, the nut on my Squire broke, so I'm going to replace it with one of these: http://accessories.musiciansfriend.com/product/Graph-Tech-Slotted-TremNut-for-Stratocaster?sku=360450

What problems may run into and is there anything I need to do with it before popping it in?

BTW: I've heard of people using a little dab of wood glue to secure their nuts (go ahead, laugh.) Is this a good idea or not?

Wow. I feel as clueless as I did when I first came in here

My graphtech nut came with fitting instructions anyway. It's quite an easy switch

Alright, cool. So, is it as simple as putting a little wood glue in the slot and popping it on?

well, what i did, was put some glue on it, stick it on, then string the 1st 3rd and 6th strings, this will clamp it on, just ahve to make sure its in the right location, but once the 3 strings are on, it shouldn't slide around too much.

alternativly you can clamp it.

Yeah if you have straight string pull you can use the strings as clamps

make sure you get the right nut, some have flat bottoms some curved, so they need to match your guitars nut slot.
