A new type of peg that makes it easier to change strings!
Either that or most guitar shops stock string pegs, Just ask at the counter .. .If they don't have them and can't get any in then they are not a real guitar shop in my opinion

SOURCE: Both the E and A strings
The neck may require adjustment, but would recommend taking it to a luthier or using a guide like raeguitars to talk you through it. Depending where it is on the fretboard that buzzes, the nut may require replacement/adjustment. I've had all these problems in the past and the above tutorial helped me fix all of them.

Hello, I actually have two extra necks that I bought on Ebay a very long time ago. No idea is they are original or not. I will post one of them on Ebay. I bought them for a project which I finished. I had also contact Washburn a while back because I was looking for the neck but they will not sell the neck unless you send them the body. They explained that each neck is fitted to the body. I believe them because none of my 4 N4 have the same neck. I can not interchange them. I am starting the bid on Ebay for $400. If you want the other neck let me know. email@example.com

You broke the 'nut' of the guitar. These cannot be repaired, but they can be replaced. Most guitar shops, such as Guitar Center, Sam Ash Music, and Musician's Friend, carry these in stock. They are fairly simple to replace, and cheap to buy. I would get a few if I were you.
They come in quite a few different materials, as well as many different colors. For color, you'll want to go with what matches the rest of your hardware. If you have chrome hardware, a white nut is good. Black hardware calls for a black nut. As for materials, that's up to you. A GraphTek nut, made mainly of graphite, reduces string friction, but costs a lot more than your standard bone nut, and almost a fortune more than a plastic nut. Sounds like you had a plastic nut, which is good for a beginner's guitar. If you can swing it, get a bone nut. It will last longer, and helps out a bit with your tone.
For replacing it, just take your strings off, and swap them out. Some guitar manufacturers glue their nuts into place, so you might have to pry on it a bit. Be careful not to scratch your guitar. It will be easier if you take off the truss rod cover (the triangular looking piece of plastic at the base of the headstock). Then, you can get some leverage under the nut, without scratching an obvious part of the guitar. Still, be careful.
After you get the old nut off, you can either place the nut on there, and string it up, or glue it in. Wood glue is suggested for the second option, but you'll have to clamp it in place and let it set overnight. The next day, you can string it up and play again. Mind you, this option is NOT recommended if your band has a gig either that night or the next day.
Hope that helps!
