How do I go about buying a new nut?

Post by jerryjones » May 8th, 2019, 11:00 pm

The guitar I have at the moment has a cheap plastic nut. I want to replace it but I have a few questions about it.

Why is there such a huge price range difference when it comes to bone nuts, some cost under $5 while others are upwards of $30, does getting a cheap bone nut really matter?

How important is the size of the nut? The one I have is 43mm so as long as I find one that 43mm should it be good or is it more specific than just that?

Thanks, Anthony
