    Yes, I could get up and walk across the room and pop the nut out of my 2018 or ‘19 Player series Strat, but it’s far too much trouble. Can anyone tell me whether a replacement nut should have a flat bottom or radiused?

    Almost always curved, IME with stock Fender nuts.

    Be aware that you need a blank with a curve to match 9 1/2" radius, not 7 1/4".

    I just pulled the nut off of a Player Tele yesterday - the base on the original is slightly curved.
