I posted this quite a while ago and revceived no I am trying once again....Thanks!

I own TB2000 no.454 and want to replace the nut so I can space the strings a bit more widely. I want to remove the original nut without damaging it or (of course) damaging the neck. It appears to simply be glued in place.

If anyone out there has removed/replaced a brass nut on any Travis Bean bass or guitar, please let me know the best way to do this.

I answered this question somewhere before. Maybe the old site. It IS simply epoxied on. Find something with a wide, flat/blunt edge. An old, dull chisel would be ideal. Butt it up against the surface on the nut that touches the end of the fingerboard & protrudes about .175 above it. The (chisel) tip should be pointing toward the tuners. A few sharp hammer blows to the chisel in the direction of the tuners should result in a clean break with the epoxy. Remove any residual epoxy before re-gluing the new nut. Strings should be OFF, or at least loose & off the nut before starting. Couldn't hurt to tape surfaces you don't want to scratch. The flatter you're able to lay the chisel the better. Hammer force should be near parallel to fingerboard.
