How to remove and replace nut

How exactly am I supposed to do this? Do I just peel it off with a razor blade or something? Or can I rip it off with pliers?

Also, how do I reattach the new nut? I was thinking of getting a graphite graphtec nut, but I hear a bone nut is another good choice.

Thanks!

Oh yeah, does anyone know which graphtec nut is a direct replacement for an RG7421?

To remove it, take a block of wood and gently tap it with a hammer towards the headstock. To install the new one, take some watered down wood glue (you don't need much), apply, and clamp in place for an hour or so, and you're good to go.

For real? Should I use wood glue, or super glue?

Wood glue. Super glue is a little too strong, and will cause tear out if for any reason you need to remove it again. You can also use Elmers white glue (without watering it down), but that tends to shift around a bit.

Hmm. I've read that you should just use a teeny dab of super glue, but I don't see why wood glue wouldn't work.

As for Graphtecs, this is the one you want: Products.&.Ordering - Graph Tech
I have one just sitting around that I was going to put in my build, but I decided to give slotting a try and got some bone blanks instead.

I bought the same nut for the RG7321 and it fits and all. It's a bit higher than the original so you'll need to sand it down a bit and do little adjustments to the slots

Yeah it'll work for a 7321, it's a 48mm width and the nuts are identical.

No problem dude!
