Hey guys. I just got a Gibson SG special for my 15th birthday on craigslist for 300 bucks. Good deal, right? Well everytime i bend the g string, or even strike it, it pops out of the nut. It looks like it wasnt cut in deep enough. Does anyone have any info on this, and what should i do? Thank you!
What gauge of string are you using?
.10, i am restringing it with another set of .10s
get the nut slotted deeper. all I can say.
ok thanks i prolly try that.
NO!!! Don't do it yourself. the nut is generally not a DIY type of thing. Bring it to someone who knows what they're doing.
well my dad is gonna do it. He is a ex carpenter, and actually made me a telecaster so i think he can do it.
