I just found my Dad's old 12 string is my garage, and I thought it might be fun to restore it so I could use it.

Its missing some tuners and I need to change the nut.

So my question is, are the tuners pretty generic, like can I just buy a set for a 12 string and it will work? and also, how do I go about removing the Nut?

Is the nut cracked or damaged? If not then the nut should be fine. When you go to replace the tuners, take the guitar along with you to a guitar store, show them and then they'll be able to find and sell you what you need.

Okay, I just restored an old acoustic and the glue was so old, all I needed to do was tug on the nut a little bit and it fell right off. I'm not sure with your guitar but this also might be the same case. Maybe where it is cracked, try to pry it off *gently* with a nail file or something that might be able to fit in the crack.

Its actually just the grooves that the strings go in that are chipped, the main body of the Nut is fine. But Ill see, the glue may be old. T

Thanks
