“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.

7.25 radius was perfect. pre cut slots helped considerably. Used Stewmac files to complete slot cutting.(from previous purchase) Dan's video was useful information in installing the nut.

Great time savers. The flat bottom Martin nuts are a little short but other than that...

Bone Nut

I have purchased several unbleached bone nuts from Stewmac and I have never been disappointed. They seem to have that antique color that I like in a bone nut. Thanks Stewmac!

Got this for a Les Paul copy, and it fit great. I like it was pre-slotted!

Great for my Guitar sound.

By

Verified Buyer


I have bought three nuts for my Martin Guitar, they only last a short time
the 5 &6 string keeps cutting through the
Nut and grounding out. So I decided to try a bone nut and I glad I did.
I called Martin for a bone nut they did not handle them, and told me to call
StewMac and I glad I did.

Not bad but...

The string slot spacing was a tad wide for a Tele on this one. Luckily, it was tall enough that I could move them over.

Bought for my Epiphone Les Paul

By

Verified Buyer


Great nut. Looks gorgeous. My only complaint is it wasn't quite as think as the old one but I'm sure the bit of glue I put on will keep it snug. I guess Epiphones and Gibsons have slight discrepancies in nut size. Epiphones have bigger nuts.

E strings spaced a hair too close...

By

Verified Buyer


I wish the E strings were spaced a bit farther apart. But great shape with the radius and thickness. Next time I'll buy the radiused blank and lay out my own string spacing. Really nice quality, though.
