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.

Nuts about nuts!

I recommend these bone nuts in all my Guitar Manuals. They give a bit more 'zing' to the sound of any guitar and as a bonus are self lubricating. 'FAN-STRATING-TASTIC' Paul Balmer__

On hand and ship timely

By
(Customer's Reviews)


About the same quality as what is available at somewhat lower prices, 20-40% acceptable for nice instruments. This experience is with # 6020. I suppose I would like to see different grades, surely different prices for them too, and the option to buy only first quality material.

Shaped Bone nuts are helpful!

By
(Customer's Reviews)


The shaped bone nut I got from you guys really helped me out on work I did recently for a customer's '73 Martin D-18. Normally I'd have to do a lot more work to get the nut to fit the headstock angle within the nut slot. The pre-shaped nut made it much easier and saved me a bunch of time! Sure, some fitting & sizing is required, but it's a lot easier when the part yer working with is already close to fitting. Thanks!

Consistent in size and quality, easily workable. Do the job at least as well as expected.

Bone fer Tone

The solidest materials transfer tone the best. Consistent colour & hardness. The first thing that I change on my own guitars...unless I built it.

Simply the best bone blanks you can buy

By
(Customer's Reviews)


This bone is always consistent and solid; they polish up very well too (not flakey and no soft spots) what can I say, I use these blanks all the time and I never have had a customer complaintàthey are always very pleased with the tone
