Les paul studio nut problem


Recommended Posts

For a temp fix you can use super glue.......you have to make a form with tape around the edges of the repair to keep the glue out of the slot.

Then a drop or 2 should bond to the chip enough to hold the string in place.........take the string out of the slot though as to not have it bond also.

+1 I have seen my luthier do this... Great suggestion...

 

Thankfully my nuts have always given me good service...

For a permanent and professional repair, use the super glue method, BUT, you should mix BAKING POWDER with the super glue into a paste. This paste is much easier to work with than the liquid, gives you a longer working time, sets up harder and will give it similar color to the nut.

 

I believe I stole this repair method from Dan Erlewein.
