Gibson SG Nut Replacement
This Gibson SG is a victim of a poorly changed nut. Someone installed a new nut but used a lot of permanent glue. Bad move because the nut is an item that may need to be changed if damaged or broken. Well it must have broken because someone tried to remove the changed nut but finally stopped-thank God! The nut material was probably Delrin-a very hard plastic like on cheap Epiphones. I used a square file and carefully removed all the Delrin. Finally I installed a new high quality bone nut and only used a few drops of hide glue. If it ever needs to be changed again a couple of taps and the nut will come right out cleanly. Click on photos.
