You must have bought the wrong one. You can put some sort of spacer under it to get it adjusted for now. I would take the guitar in with you next time and let someone knowlegable get you a nut that will work for that guitar.

Get a professional to do it, you'll never have any problems. If someone on here has a better way for you to do it with pefection than cool. There are a bunch of methods, try a google search and see what you come up with.

Nutz come in all shapes and sizes - thickness, width, height, string spacing, radius. Just buying one and putting it on, odds are it won't be quite right. You can buy pre-slotted nuts, usually they are too high and you have to sand down the bottom to the right height. If you have the original one, you can take it in and try to match it.

I couldn't resist ... the level of maturity on this forum probably just drastically dropped, my apologies.. i'll keep it to myself next time.
And it's all your fault.
