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.

Great material

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.

a matter of preference...

I gave these a try but I found them too soft and with a tendency to bind the strings. It was an experiment worth trying but this material seems better suited for acoustic guitars than vibrato equipped shredding machines.

They work more easily than bone as advertised but the appearance is dull and not very attractive IMO. I tried one just to see, but will be going back to bone nuts in future.

These nuts are great... but they are not ideal for us Ukulele builders. We waste much of the material. What we really need is a nut that is 1.5 X 0.25 X 0.375 inches.

Get Bone

By
(Customer's Reviews)


I tried making a nut of this material, because of the oversized nut slot, which didn't hold bone blanks well, and this micarta blank fitted fine. I must say, i'm confused by all those five stars reviews.

What i noticed from my expirience. This material is SOFT. Which resulted in dull sound of open plain strings. It's also tough, so it doesn't sand or cut well, compared to bone. I'm not gonna use it anymore, waste of time.

picked these up for some nylon string basses I'm making and they work GREAT. The first went on a 41.5 scale slap bass and it's easy to shape and resonates well. Perfect for my purpose. A+++
