I was trying to replace my low E string and the corner just chipped off.

Now I just superglued it back together and will wait for 2-3 days until it sets and try to string it again.

Because then it will just chip again if it does not have time to set.

Good things happen to patient people.

ok guys. in all fairness, their have been thousands of mis leading thread titles. Never grows old on ug tho

You would be better off buying a new one imo. Might just keep happening!
#10
That happened to me too dude. The luthier told me it happened because the string didn't fit correctly in the nut , so the pressure was on the side of the nut , not in the bottow. He said you must be careful when you are using 0.11 ore Heavier , because most of the nuts come with a spacing for 0.10-0.9.

Cheers from guitar-land.

If it doesnt work out, I'll just get a new nut fitted for .11's, since I wanted a heavier gauge anyways.


I was actually putting a .46 on and it chipped the nut. I'm not sure if the original nut was made for .42's.
#12
Your nut was chipped...darn thats gotta hurt man...Didn't know "nuts" could be chipped...LoL sorry couldn't resist..Nyway should probably try to get a replacement as I don't think the super glue will last long..=x

if you want, you can put a little baking powder and add the super glue. it will build up the cut.

then file the slot after. with a tooth pick wrapped in fine sand paper.

Thanks for all the suggestions.

By the way, how much would getting a new cut nut cost? I'd prefer a graphite one, as I believe they are cheaper because they are readily available and easy to cut.

plastic should be under $30, more like 20.

and graphite usually add around 10 bucks. depends where you live.

if you find a precut, in the right size, it;s not a hard fix on ur own.

I'm not really confident in my nut sanding skills so I'd rather have a professional do it.
