I just bought a new Fender Jazz bass last week, and everytime i play it the A-string tends to slip out of the nut. when i slap, when i normal pluck, it always manages to find its way out, sometimes even if i'm pressing down on a fret. any tips? should i hollow out the nut a little bit with a round file or...?
possibly...i'm not too sure. would that make sense? the string just keeps jumping out of the notch in the nut.
