I was restringing my hellraiser and the nut came off, is it ok to try to just have the pressure of the strings hold it in place? Or do I need to have it repaired?
#2
Just super glue it and make sure that you position the nut right its not that hard. Just Make sure that htere isn't any space around the nut and then if there is sand or file off the old glue. Simple.

Yes. They're all cheap..... unless they mention a specific nut on the website like graphtech, or earvana.

Usually all you have to do is super glue it back in place. That happened to my Talman a few years ago, glues it back on and now there are no problems.

You could get a new nut if you wanted (graphtech makes some nice ones) but most of the time that requires filing the nut slots to the correct size and then cutting/shimming the nut to fit.

Super glue it??? Why do you people have an Internet connection?

Don't super glue it! Use weak glue, just enough to hold it in place, the pressure of the strings will do the rest.
Dear God, do you actually answer prayers?

Yes, but only in a way indistinguishable from random luck or the result of your own efforts.

This. Even wood glue will do. If you ever have to take the nut off for replacement, that shit will never come off.

Also, glue it on and let it dry for some time. Don't start putting strings back on as the tension of the wound strings will just pull the nut off and you'll have to basically fight to keep it on just right. Just let it dry a good 10 minutes and it'll be good to go. And don't over-do the glue. Have Q-tips and a soft cloth to clean up any excess glue.

You are terrible.


Super glue the nut back in place, and make sure that it's set correctly
#18
You can leave the nut as is, just line it up center, and the string pressure will keep it on there, just, any really good bends, or if it gets knocked around will throw it off center, but no biggy.

I'd just glue it down with carpenters glue, works great.

is that sloppy nut comon to every schecter? my omen 6 did that too.


A loose nut is not necessarily a sign of poor craftsmanship. It is better to have a nut with not enough glue that can be popped back into place than it is to have one that cannot be removed without a screwdriver and a hammer. And if the nut was installed in higher humidity than the local humidity the slot may have been a lot tighter to begin with.
