if you hypothetically had a 70s really cool guitar that if it worked perfectly you'd play IT all the time but it doesn't work perfectly so it's driving you insane. the nut is too high so the first fret sounds about like the 2nd fret.... what would you do?

wtf just replace the nut?

I had a friend who was held at gunpoint as a cashier. The robber told him to give him all the money in the register and what not. Apparently my friend then replied, "Would you like a slurpee with that?"

I'd get a time machine, travel back to the 70's and go back to the store and ask for a brandnew replacement.

Bring it to a good tech to get the nut replaced and to get a refret done.

Those things will barely hurt its value and 70's guitars aren't that sought after either.
At least when talking about Gibsons and Fenders.

Ibanez 1987 Roadstar II Deluxe

i have one from the 70's. it is mint, i got it from my grandfather who never played it. it does not work, i have come to the conclusion that the pickup is the problem. i will likely get it rewound. it has foil on the pickups, and i am just assuming it was one of the tons of cheap MIJ that were imported decades ago. as far as everything goes it in good shape, no bowing of the neck, etc.

I have a vintage 85' guitar with all original gear, I'll tell you that those old humbuckers growl and squeel and are well worth whatever repair you get done
