    I have an old bottle of Elmer's School Glue from when my kids were little - it's my go-to nut glue. It's like regular white Elmer's except that it has even less adhesion. A small drop holds the nut in place just well enough that it doesn't fall off during string changes, but you can knock it off with a mean look or a strong word.

    Good grief! I just looked on their site. Now I realise I've been neglecting my Tele; the poor thing's obviously highly stressed and all tensed up. I'm rushing off to order a couple of these devices right now.

    You don't even need glue if youre out. You can use lacquer.

    Gaffer's tape leaves less residue. Prevents the awkward parent-teacher conferences.

    Just eat some greasy fried chicken every night for a week. Then without washing your hands pick up that guitar and play it for a couple of hours. I guarantee you that by the end of the week those strings will be so dead the only sustain you'll have will be imagined. :p

    Just remember not to use Resobond with Rosewood fretboards unless you plan on tuning to 444 A.
