Due to a hurricane i was without power and ac all of last week , and as i feared, both of my basses have some neck warping issues. after 30 minutes of adjusting i had both necks straight again. however, my Thunderbird's(don't flame me) nut is now loose(was straight before, I'm positive on that). its kind of jammed up and there is some space between it and the headstock. and i cant just push it down into the groove because then the strings are touching the fretboard.

so my question is, is there a way to fix this cheaply myself or should i take it in to a shop.
So, goin’ down the Amazon in a light green ’57 Chevy, uh. Well, you think that’s, um, kind of heavy?

that sounds pretty wild. I'd take it to a shop.

Take it to a shop. I wouldn't risk trying to fix something like that on your own. The thought of trying to fix a loose nut without assistance scares the bajesus out of me...

that's a warped nut. that's terrible. and it may have to be replaced.

Well, it wasn't exactly high quality to begin with. Is there a certain kind of nut i should get or just go with what the shop has on hand?

plastic. maybe bone. depends on prices. don't splurge for say, brass or graphite, it isn't worth it on any cheap bass.

though, if it costs too much, you could replace the whole thing.

Just out of curiousity, where do you live that could cause such warp-age within 30 minutes of A/C lessness?

Ah, I guess I read the first post wrong. And, now that I have an understanding of your perimeter, I can see why you'd have necks warp at the loss of climate control. But, yeah, the shop is your best bet. And hey, at least you're okay...I assume.
