You can buy pre-cut P nuts from Guitar Center for
about $10 plus shipping,

http://www.guitarcenter.com/Fender-American-Standard-Precision-Bass-Nut-100358011-i1133853.gc

If they are near you, they should have them, and can
save you time and shipping cost.

If you shop around, you may find a better deal, I don't
know.

Note;

Just because they are pre-cut does not mean you do not
need to adjust them. They are most often too high and a
tad too wide.

Be careful. The nut hight is critical. I used to always buy two
because I usually messed up the first one..... lol

I'm better at it now though.... I usually get it first now days,.

There may be a guy at GC that can just slap it in,, but don't
count on it.

Oh man, when it comes to nut problems, I know all about it.
Both of my nuts are in really bad shape.

One for my bass, one for my guitar that is.

Really, I hate my nuts right now.

I have glued them back together,
and even put shims under strings,



If you can find a piece of tough plastic,
it is possible to just cut one out, but, it's
rough on a beginner, but it can be done,

^That's just so ghetto, I"m sorry. I'm almost tempted to loan you the cash to replace that!

http://www.stewmac.com/shop/Nuts,_saddles.html

Stewart Macdonald sells replacements rather cheap and do ship internationally. However, I'm sure that Chris (Nutter) can probably point you to someone in the UK who carries them as well.

And welcome back!

Indeed I can! .

Here you go:

http://www.axesrus.com/axeNuts.htm

Free UK delivery. Bear in mind you'll need to sand the nut down on the bottom. There are guides on how to do it online, it's pretty simple. Just a bit of measuring and stuff.
