I'm not sure what you mean by subminiature?
check these out:

olol! price mesplosion!

yeah, subminiature. Well, you know the way there's, for example, a 12AU7? But then there's a "subminiature" equivilant, which is a much smaller one, but does ALMOST the same thing.
here, you can see a 12AU7, with a subminiature equivilant, the 6111. I know the 6111 has a different, more common code though... i just can't find it.

Oh right

Not too familiar with those, just what they use in guitar amps haha. I know a fair few sites that might have info though - I'll check.

Precisely. Anything goes in the Banter thread, as I've been explaining in there tonight it's fine to have your own conversation. Everyone else does!

fair play there. i guess its just a balancing act between keeping things civil, happy, and informative (which are, of course, very important here), and retaining the personality of this area (which is why we all keep coming back).

im sure all the (non-cuntish) k+t regs will try and make this work out as intended

now a kit-related question.. last time i got my tele set up, the tech said it had a little crack in the nut under the D string, which resulted in added buzz. i shifted up a string gauge and it became less of an issue, but now im back using 10s and the buzz has returned.

so i guess i need a new nut. question is: what kinda nuts would people reccomend (bone/plastic/graphite/roller/etc?), and what kinda prices are reasonable for a nut replacement?

cheers!

A rolling nut would be quite useless as your tele doesn't have a whammy bar on it, so you don't divebomb.

I would go with bone, and they're about... $10 max? Then it would depend how long it'd take to get it off and on again, which you could even do yourself probably, unless it's lacquered over or something like that...

you should be done for about $40 max (which is already near steep) if you have it done.

I suggest getting a bone nut and just getting a random pencil and rubbing the graphite part in the slots for the strings. Seeing how people rave about how bone nuts are mega sustain or whatnot and how graphite seems to be a good lubricant.

Yep, you can't whammy without a whammy. I reckon all nuts are the same, but graphite will last longer? I'm sure there are some gear nuts who will say they can tell the difference. I got a new acoustic nut done for 10 once.

Nothing noticeable tone wise. I'm not sure about price, especially in Aus.

You are talking about the screw hole that goes into the guitar yeh? Use a bigger screw, or fill the hole with some wood (like your matchstick) as well as some glue, wait for it to dry and put a new screw in. Why don't you want to use glue?
