Hey, I recently got a pretty beat up acoustic guitar (it was free). It's a montaya... whatever that is. But the nut is pretty beat up and I was wondering how much it would cost to get replaced, and if you guys have any suggestions.

Thanks.
Too many people own guitars. Someone had better go play a... clarinet or something.

Not too much. I had to get the nut replaced on my Les Paul last month and it only cost like $20.

A lot of people like to recommend the DIY method when it comes to something small like a nut. However small the nut may be, it's certainly not simple. String spacing is very difficult, especially when compensating for string width, and there's no room for error.

$20 seems right.

I replaced the nuts of my guitars(5 in all) w/ bones I made myself.The third try paid off...but it cost me a day to make 1 nut.I think the $20 is easier but it makes me understand more of the guitar anatomy....
