Hi

Could anyone tell me how to change a nut on a guitar?, specifically on a Fender Stratocaster. Is it difficult? What tools do I need?

Thanks.

i used a chisel, a hammer, and a small woodblock. the chisel and hammer worked best but i was dangerously close to screwing up my neck.

with enough force and patience, it should come out since it's held in by glue.

If you don't know how, take it in to the shop and let them do it. Its better to pay to have it done right , than to pay to have them repair the damage you did while trying to do it.

Ya I think a hairdryer would be a good tool to heat up the general area and try to loosen the nut. Anyway ts why do you need to replace the nut?

Its held by glue so some taps with a chisel should remove it.
