Details

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.

Good quality product

By Michel Boissonneault from Qu+¬bec, Cab
(Customer's Reviews) Tuesday, December 04, 2012


As expected, this bone nut blank is easy to shape with files and the polish gives a great quality finish. Fit well on my custom resonator guitar.

I ordered some bone nut blanks to replace the nut on my Les Paul and three other guitars. Now all my guitars have a bone nut and they've never sounded better! Couldn't be happier.

Quality blanks that worked very well

Unlike a lot of blanks I've purchased these were squared up very well on all sides. They cut and shape easily for bone with no chipping. They polished well and should last a long time now that they're in place. I plan to purchase more for future jobs.

great bone you will have a nice tune in your guitar, i just wish it could be like 5mm it would be nice, but still great

Great product

By Marcio Costa from Brasil
(Customer's Reviews) Friday, July 13, 2012


The nut comes almost ready to use, altough it lacks a millimiter more material on top for shaping. I taped a piece of sandpaper to my fingerboard,
between the first two frets, to use it as a "sanding caul" and shape the bottom of the nut. I had it widened to 12" radius. This delicate operation left me no bone left int the top of the nut for crowning and polishing. I had to carve shallow string grooves too. Besides this, exceptional bone quality.

These look GREAT!

(Customer's Reviews) Tuesday, June 19, 2012


I use standard files to cut these into shape. They shape nice and easy. These sand and buff really nicely and are super hard. They give the guitar great resonance.

Nice Nutz

I needed an extra thick nut so I glued 2 bone nuts together. I Cut rough shape with a fine scroll saw and filed to final shape. The bone was easy to work with and sounds great.

I have used a bunch of these and only a few have had dead spots. 9 out of ten are perfect.
