Softer than bone, and files easily. Micarta is an excellent synthetic bone substitute.

Specified by Martin for nuts and saddles since the 1960s. Ivory in color and a bit softer than bone, it files and sands easily and gives a uniform tone.

Good Nut

By

I bought this to replace a broken nut on an old Silvertone for a friend. Definitely easier to work with than bone. Much better tone than the plastic one it replaced. My friend could not believe the tonal difference.

Works good for practice making nuts is why I got a few blanks but not the great for actually using as a nut.. Doesn't sound as good as bone or the newer tusq thats for sure...

I know some people rave about this stuff, but I couldn't get on with it at all. Normally for rough shaping a nut I hit it with a belt sander. This stuff just melts and it clogs up nut files on the first stroke. Back to bone for me.
