Good Nut

By SRW from Burleson, TX
(Customer's Reviews) Tuesday, September 17, 2013


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.

Great for practice making nuts but...

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...

Hmmmmmmmmm.

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.

Great Tone...

...And very easy to work with. Micarta files, sands and polishes better than bone. It also has a nice vintage-look, unlike bright-white bone. I have a recent-production Fender neck that shipped with this nut material, so I thought I'd try it on one of my projects. I'm sold and have reordered more, for other projects, since.

This is the stuff for New Gibsons

This is the same stuff Gibson has been using for about the past 15- 20 years. So, great for Gibson service work.

Good quality blank nut

Nice material, fairly easy to work with.

First time "nut maker"

This was my first nut ever - put it on a pre-made neck from Golden Gate (Strat-style neck). You are definitely given enough material - almost too much in my case. Be prepared to file and sand for several hours to get the desired shape/size. I had to re-do my slot spacing as the guide I was following must have been for a child (way to tight for me, and I dont have huge fingers). Anyway, it was fun, and I look forward to playing my hand-made guitar very soon!

Not bad, not bad.....

I am restoring several old Silvertone Guitars and converting them to left handed setup so there were no commercially available nuts that were right. I had never made a nut before so I bought 3 of these. The first nut I made didn't turn out well but I learned what I did wrong. The next 2 nuts I made turned out great, sound great, and really look good on these vintage guitars. I will definitely be buying more in the future.
