    Proper glue for reattaching my nut.

    So I removed the strings on my new Schecter, with the purpose of conditioning the fretboard and replacing the strings with a lighter gauge when I noticed the nut seemed to be sitting at a strange angle. I took a closer look, touched it and the damned thing wasn't even attached. What the fuck!

    So anyway, rather than bringing it in and waiting for them to reattach it I figure i might as well do this on my own. So, what kind of glue should I use to reattach this thing. I build 1/25 scale Funny Car/Dragster models so I might have the proper stuff at hand. I have thin, medium and thick CA glue. i have Elmer's White Glue, I have 5 minute epoxy and carpenters wood glue.
    Would Any of these do the trick?

    the nut on my ninja is loose and I've never bothered to glue it and I have no issue with it...just use whatever but just enough to make it stay put since you don't want to be pulling wood out when you replace it

    I use just a single, itsy bitsy drop of super glue in the middle. That will hold it tight, but will break off cleanly if you need to remove it. DO NOT cover the whole surface with super glue.

    I'd do as Max said, or even use Elmer's glue. You're really only gluing it down to keep it from sliding around, as the string pressure will hold it down fairly tightly.

    Superglue. Maybe a little more than an itty bitty dot, but not much more.

    I've used wood glue for this in the past but I haven't exactly researched it either...
