A few weeks ago i was putting new strings on my Yamaha RBX 270 and after only playing a few mins of the bass site of the nut snaped ( where the g was ). I should be able to get another soon but exactly how can i remove the Nut ? My bass is still on warrent so is there a guide to remove it and put another one on ?
Score the finish around the egde of the nut and tap it out from the side.
And how to stick it back on, do you simply get super glue etc ?
don't get superglue. hammer it in lightly with a rubber hammer
alright thanks alot, but something else, the new strings i got were larger then the oringnal and my dad lightly sandpapered the groove of the nut so the strings would sit nicely, but i know that didnt cause my g the snap the edge, was it a good idea for my dad to sandpaper the grooves ?
