“Starting with one of these slotted nuts saves me about an hour per job. And they're unbleached bone, my favorite for tone.”
—Erick Coleman, StewMac tech advisor

Stewart-MacDonald is your source for quality bone!
You already know bone nuts sound better than plastic. Good news: our vintage-look unbleached bone nuts are now available pre-slotted! It's easier than ever to install a perfect, super-hard nut. That's a huge time savings—especially in professional repair shops.

The slots are proportionally-spaced, using the same method as our String Spacing Rule. This means the strings feel right all across the neck—no crowding on the heavier bass strings.

These beautifully shaped nuts are StewMac exclusives, with research and design by our repair experts. Final fitting is all you'll need to do.

Worked great

Bought this to hopefully save some time on thickness fitting and radiusing the bottom. A MIM Fender Tele had a broken plastic nut. This replaced the factory nut and fit the slot perfectly. String spacing was identical. String slots had to be cut to correct depth, but the result was amazing and the time/work savings outweighed the cost of this.

Bleached bone can look like plastic when you polish it. Unbleached bone looks authentic and classic.

Replace broken telephone nut. By being very cautious with setting nut height & slot depths it takes time to get playability & intonation right.

Used this for a replacement nut on my Crafter. Great material to work with and Bone definitely sounds best.

I am happy with this string nut. It looks great and is easy to size it for the neck it's going on.

OK

These are not vintage spaced, so nothing really cool here. I still had to build my own because string spacing was much too narrow to use for vintage 1 3/4" nuts.

A must for Luthiers and do it yourselfers

Makes changing the nut alot easier, especially if your doing it your selfer. Its a very high quality bone nut looks like it came stock on my vintage 57 goldtop reissue. Its very dense molecular structure has killer tone. Of all the nuts on the internet I'm glad I bought this from StewMac. Very pleased
