well, a while ago, for some reason, and i won't go into detail why, i superglued the nut on my guitar to the output, and now i need to get it off. i've been trying all sorts of methods, but i cant break the glue. anyone got any ideas what i could possibly due without damaging the guitar? its an SG btw, so the output in on the front of the guitar

I wanna hear the story of why the hell you did that! Please?

Um I've heard warm soapy water works on super-glue but I don't know how practical that'd be on a guitar
#5
i dont think a picture will help. it looks perfectly normal, there is just super glue between the nut and the part the nut screws on to, which is the output. i basically was getting sick of the nut loosening so thats what i did, and it needs to get off now

OOOOOOOH. okay. i get it. I thought you meant the nut at the top of the fretboard, not the nut-and-bolt-and-screw kind of nut.

just google how to get that type of glue loose. usually infolves some kind of heat/water thing though.

why do you need to take it off though?

(pictures would still be very useful)
call me ziggy.

i need to take it off, because the glue the glue dried when the nut wasnt tightened all the way, so the output is stuck at very loose

Fixed.

My enthusiasm kind of died when I realized you weren't talking about the nut on the headstock

Try using a damp q tip and wetting it? But I won't be held liable if anything goes wrong so wait for someone else to recommend something that would work.

Pics.....please?

sorry, im too lazy to post pics, which im fairly certain wont do any good. pliers wont do, because it just twists the whole output with out
#11
get something hard, sharp and pointy, like a toothpick but maybe metal?

dig all the excess glue off.

then, i dont know, blast it with a hairdrier until it gets soft enough to be twisted off with a pair of pliers.

i took a torch lighter to this stuff, and it didnt soften or melt or anything

Ok, well, from what it sounds like you're pretty ****ed, pardon my french. So, here's what you can do.

Option 1: Take a rubber band and wrap it around the output jack on the threads until it's tight and fits snuggly on the jack plate.

Or

Option 2: Buy a new jack (should come with a new mounting nut), cut the old one off the wires to the guitar electronic, and solder the new jack on.
Actually, I go by Dave, but there are already too many Daves on this forum.

This is probably your best bet.

Consider it an upgrade for your guitar. Get a good quality output jack.

i kind of want to buy a new jack, but, again, i cant get the nut off
#19
Use a Q Tip and nail polish remover and lightly dab around the nut, wait a few minutes repeat. After another couple of minutes the nut should come loose. Be careful with nail polish remover, it also removes finishes and paint.

Never super glue your nuts.

Negitive. Acetone works on super glue along with other nice chemicals. The stuff laughs at water.

this thread should end now, as i got the thing off a couple hours ago, but it was at the cost of detached wires, that i poorly soldered back on, so now i dont know if it will even work, because i currently have no cables in my house
