Bone's hardness and density contributes to good tone, it polishes well, and it allows more precise slot filing.

Stewart-MacDonald is your source for quality bone!
Bone is traditionally preferred for making nuts and saddles on quality instruments.

Blank nuts have oversize length and height, for custom shaping in your shop. They're ready for trimming, filing, sanding and slotting.

Preshaped nuts will save you a LOT of work — a head start for the novice builder, and a bonus for the busy repair shop where time is money! The dimensions have been carefully researched, and minor trimming, slotting, and sanding are all that's needed to fit most popular guitars.

Love These Nuts!

By
(Customer's Reviews)


I made my first 2 nuts using these nut blanks. I gained a lot of confidence in cutting / slotting / shaping using these. I found the process very tedious, but it was so cool to make a nut from scratch using these blanks that actually played very well. To see the finished shaped nut that was made from this material gave a great feeling of accomplishment! Great blanks guys! Nice!

Aww Nuts

I keep a variety of these on hand to keep from getting into a bind. They have been pretty consistant. I only wish the unbleached was cheaper than the bleached.
