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.

Bleached?

Ordered #6010 (bleached Gibson blank). Received blank with chipped ends in a natural tone. "Bleached" or not, it's not bone-white. Plan to return and not order again.

Great service

By
(Customer's Reviews)


I have been a customer of stewmac since 2010, and have placed probably 15-20 orders with them since I started building. Everything I have received from them has always been exactly what they say. My first two instruments were built with stewmac kits and both turned out great. Amazing sounding instruments and I have owned an HD28, a D35, a J45(1950 which I still have, one owner bought by my dad), a J30, numerous Fenders, just to name a few. You will not be disappointed with this company. Great service, and even though I am not kit building any longer, I still count on them for any number of parts, (bridges, fingerboards, bridgepins, lots of stuff). Great customer service, and a shipping department that rivals the best anywhere.....Phil Jones. And yes, the nuts are great

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.

Bone Nut

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

By
(Customer's Reviews)


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 product

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!

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

(Customer's Reviews)


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.
