I got a cheap Epi LP Jr., aka Mr. Ugly, that I want to set up for slide. When I took the strings off, If found that the nut wasn't secured and only the string tension was holding it in place. This is what the nut slot looks like
I was thinking of using a thin shim before I found about this, so, what would anyone here suggest? Thanks.
Or a slightly larger drop of white glue aka WeldBond(it's water soluable).
For the shim material: strips of credit card, popsicle sticks, shaved off strips of sewer grate,
You would also need to flatten the string radius by levelling/flattening the bridge and nut
