    I busted my nut..

    Literally lol. Had my Egan 8 string out for a little neck inspection without strings on and the fucker fell right on the floor, breaking right at the g string slot (I ain't even lying)
    No shattering occurred, so am I safe to super glue it back up and continue on?
    It still fits together seamlessly.
    Thanks lads!

    Probably on the wrong section sorry folks

    Personally I see no harm in gluing it and reusing it.

    I'd replace it personally if it's cracked through the slot as it may cause bunching up and give you massive tuning hassles. Plus by the time you replaced the nut, glued it together and had the slot recut and sanded, it isn't too much more effort to have the whole thing replaced.

    i would replace it as well, it's not like it is too costly, best to be on the safe side at least
