    Nut Work... lolz

    Hey my 330nt nut is already wore out after a year sadly. Its my fault for changing my tuning so much. but, I have looked online and I found that my guitar uses a 42 mm nut. I was looking at maybe getting a graphite nut. I know this cant be a hard fix. I finally talked myself in fixing it myself. I'm just a bit worried that I might screw it up and I don't want my baby to be broken and dead. I been using my second guitar for months and would like to get back to using my shredder. Any tips before I give this a try? Thanks guys - Graph Tech PT-5042-00 Black TUSQ Electric Guitar Nut Strat 42mm this is what I am looking at for the guitar

    Make sure you get the right kind of nut. Does your guitar have the nut mounted in a slot on the fretboard like a Strat or behind the end of the fretboard, like on a Les Paul?

    If you're unsure or uncomfortable with this kind of work, take it to a pro. Even with a pre-slotted nut, the string slots will need to be cut properly for the best action on your particular fretboard, which can require some specialized small files.

    You'd like to think it can't be hard... Until you do it wrong IMO take it to a tech. It won't be as expensive as you think.
