Ok so heres the deal. I just bought a new Fender 5 Jazz active bass. I recently had it adjusted and the guy messed up the nut. It fell off. Normally I figured I could hold it down with the tension from the strings. Unfortunately the B string pushes it off to the side even after stringing it last. Its actually playable but with a horrible buzz. Do I have to take it in or can I fix this myself. Thanks a bunch in advance

Gorilla glue????

I'd personally take it in. make the guy who messed it up pay for it too.

I would but I don't want him to glue it wrong leaving me with constant unfixable buzz

I mean glue it yourself. but I really wouldn't. there was a bit of sarcasm in there. I think the best option is to take it in and have him pay for it. From what i hear this type of repair is really cheap anyway.

The nut is broken it sounds like. You need to buy a new one and either replace it yourself, or have someone else do it. Which ever luthier broke it should be responsible for fixing it free of charge imo

Its not really "broken" its just off. Nothing is cracked, nothing is bent. just off. So ill take it to get glued. thanks a bunch, I thought it would be more complex
