I think I know the answer to this watching the recent Dave’s World of Fun Stuff regarding the G&L bass, but wanted to double check…
I have a fairly stripped nut on the Bello bass.
I have been using one of the Stew Mac ‘gripper’ truss rod wrenches with the tapered tip to adjust the nut but each time takes a bit more metal with it.
It works, but takes some fiddling, and worried at some point there will be no more fiddle with it, and would rather not have to buy the Stew Mac nut resuce kit, so, figure I will replace it.
ESP does not offer replacement parts (thanks ESP), good to know when considering a higher end bass from you.
My assumption is i can take off the strings, and then completely remove the nut without any worry to measure the threads, lenght and dimensions to find a replacement, then easily put it or a new one back on.
Is this accurate?
Just double checking.
