No matter how you do it you will probably need to have the nut filed to get the right action on your neck. I wouldn’t attempt that myself. If you screw it up you get to buy another nut and try again. As far as glue goes, polyurethane works well. : i bought a junker les paul copy and it needed a nut. i got one. its the right width but it sticks up way too high. I have 2 questions. : 1. Whats the stanard way o making the nut thinner? File the back down? cut it with something? : 2. What sort of glue works for gluing a plastic nut to a wooden neck? : Id be very greatful for any sugestions of if somone knows a website that has this info. : thanks : Abe
