The nut came off of one of my guitars. The strings are still on it so the nut is still sitting there and it holds tuning I just need to re-attach it. The only problem is, I've never had to do anything like that before. So, Will E6000 or some other kind of strong adhesive work or do I need something made specifically for guitars? Thanks

Just some regular wood glue or super glue will work fine.

Just squirt some in the nut slot, line the nut up even and clamp it down. Let it sit for at least a day or two to let the glue bond.

Be careful with how much glue you use. A little bit goes a long way.

agreed, but don't use superglue. that shit sets way too fast. wood glue, so you can still make fine adjustments before it sets. then clamp it.

I also hear horror stories of a nut needing to be replaced and the previous owner or tech used superglue... Causes problems when you actually need to remove a nut.
