Nut is not tight enough on my new Jb100C

Postby Marius » Thu May 25, 2017 2:32 pm


My JB100C came 3 days ago. I have to say that the guitar is stanning !, but I have something to complain about the guitar. Today I tried the tremolo and almost everytime I used it like after a dive bomb I heard a cracking on the right site of the nut. Every screw was tightly tightened except one, the right screw on the nut. I tried to tight it but it didn't work. I think that the screw is twisted, it follows that the nut is not fixed and i think thats where the cracking is coming from. Is there something I can do so the screw get hold again?

P.s I just looked closely on the nut while using the tremelo and you also can see the nut on the site with the "broken screw " moving forward and backward. The Truss Rod cover is moving because of the nut too

Best regards,

You need to call them and send it back if its messed up. Give them a chance to fix it.

At first I thought the cracking noise was possibly a sticky nut and the noise was the string breaking free but you may have other issues
