Ever since I purchased my Jaguar, the nut has been loose, so I thought I would try and glue it in there, came out nice n easy as it was loose to begin with, but, putting it back in did me no good....broke the nut. I ordered a new one, a blank one, is there anyway to take care of the slots myself? There's no decent repair shop around here, unless of course I'm willing to wait a month or two for my instrument to get back into my hands. Or pay a rediculous fee for a not so professional job. And, I'm totally not willing to do that.

The double sided nut files at StewMac are seriously expensive at $25 a peice. Use the orginal nut as a guide if you can. You can try using an Exacto Razor set to cut the slots... dunno how well it'd work. Not a fun job if you don't have the right tools.

Use a drop of elmer's glue to secure the nut, clamp it by stringing the guitar . Don't use anything permanent, it's a pain to remove later on.

If I remember correctly September 19th, 2008. September either way. I forgot, it was actually sticking out a bit, I hadn't noticed it for a long while, so it wasn't placed correctly, and I fixed it and just never glued it, til I figured why not, I was putting on some new strings anyway.

25 bucks, yeah that's expensive for sure.

Never use permanent glue, good idea good sir!
