is this something you can do yourself or is it possible to get a luthier or guitar store to do it?

I don't know, i've got a friend who doesn't really know much about how to take care of a guitar, and he just YANKED off his nut one time, and just slapped anothe one on there.... but i don't recommend that.

Just call your local guitar store, and ask them if they can do it.

its fairly simple job depending on the type of nut you are replacing and your skill i would suggest takng it to the shop tho you run a good chance first time around of scratching the headstock or worse.if your interested in learning to work on guitars i would suggest taking some junkers apart first.

for lilly's post... you could just buy an old broken neck off eBay for cheap, and see what you can do to the nut on that one.... just get one similar to yours....

from what i understand though, you have to cut it out with some sorta razor or chisel and then glue another one in? is that the entire process?

i have a feeling the process would be a bit more intricate than that, i dont think glue would be able to fix it

Well, some of them glue in, while others are held in by pressure alone... it depends.

Replacing one isnt that big of a deal. The gibson style at the end of the fret board does need glue or it wont stay in 1 spot. The fender style wont move to easy in its slot with or without glue. But you wont get the best action just putting a premade nut in a guitar and stringing it up. Usually the strings will be to high off the frets. It takes the set of special files and some experience to file the slots to the right height.
