Black TUSQ XL Nuts

Self-lubricating nuts from Graph Tech are ideal for string bending and tremolo work. Now in more sizes!

Extra slippery: TUSQ XL® is impregnated with Teflon® (500% more slippery than graphite). During tremolo bends, the strings slide in the slots, returning to accurate pitch.

Dense and resonant: Pressure-formed TUSQ transfers string energy more efficiently, without dead spots found in natural materials. Guitars come alive with enhanced harmonics, volume and sustain.

Pre-shaped: Slotted or unslotted, they require only minor trimming.

the strings slide through the slots with no resistance. i do a lot of string bending and this nut really helps keep me in tune. very easy to work with too(filing and shaping).

Great product. Wish it came slotted for bass too.

I like Tusq. It's my favorite nut material on basses when brass is not preferred. I get the 44.45mm unslotted ones. To slot it and shape it is a cinch. I wish Stewmac carried also the pre slotted ones for 4 and 5 strings bass though. One can never be lazy enough ;)

Almost Effortless

I've used these on three guitars now, a LP Studio and two Teles,I'm loathe to use anything else now unless it is for a vintage, period correct material instrument. Only require minor sanding for perfect action and installation. The tone is at least equal, and IMO better than bone.

Great product

I ordered about 3 of these in the past year or so and every one of them was a perfect fit both in the depth of the string slots and the width of the nut itself.

Accurate but Crude Finish

By

Verified Buyer


Slots were correctly placed and shaped but the finish was very rough. Not of the quality that I require for my instruments.

Great tuning stability

By

Verified Buyer


A few minutes of careful sanding is all that's needed to get these nuts to fit. Smooth, easy tuning and the strings no longer bind in the nut. Great tuning stability. A must have for players that play hard and do a lot of hard string bending.

Awesome

Really works great. Had to do a little shaving on the bottom edge to get a perfect fit, but these really are nice.
