ok..on my fender strat copy, i was replacing my low E string, and i was tuning it, when i heard like this metally rattling sound...and I saw like the nut getting sawed off by my new E string....

now i gotta get a new nut...will any kind of nut work on the guitar? or does it have to be customized, and also, what is the best material to get with 10-25$ budget? Iwas leaning towards stronger materials, like metals, brass, etc...

you can get any kind of material you want, but if you have a tight budget, make sure it's a Pre cut. and that it fits the spot as closely as possible to avoid unnecessary filing.

were you doing the job urself?


here are some different materials

i just went into an authorized dealer and had them order straight from ibanez, i got the exact nut size and it cost .30 cents.

then i used a tutorial to help put it on. took about a day. but dont take off all the strings until you have the new nut there waiting.

Any old nut'll do. If it doesn't fit, the guitar store'll probably sand it down and make it fit. I prefer tusk nuts. Resonance goes through the roof with tusk nuts.

so how much do you guys think it would cost to replace the nut, like if i went to the store gave em my guitar, picked out a preslotted bone nut, and let them put it in for me, how much would that cost?

also, do they give me new strings after? or do they just cut off all my strings, and replace the nut, and give me a stringless guitar.

with a plastic replacement around $20-30 USD.

and if you tell them to save the old strings they can try.
