“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. Sizing Chart

unbleached slotted guitar nut

By L Kelley from Texas
(Customer's Reviews) Wednesday, October 09, 2013


Great product for someone who does not have the tools or knowledge to cut a nut from a blank. It took me an hour to reduce height, length and thickness for my Eastman AC712. Another hour to lower slots (check often) for intonation and tuning and polishes like glass. Used needle files and polishing pads and it turned out perfect.

Replaced the plastic nuts on a Epi Broadway and Sheraton. Excellent!!! Fit and spacing were right on. The stock nuts were junk. Bone nuts really made the guitars come alive. Easy to work with and saved lots of time. Highly recommended. Thanks Stew-Mac.

Great!

I got two - one for my.EL -00 and one for my Ultra 339; both Epis. The EL-00 opened right up, I felt a bit of a volume boost, and it sounds great with the nickel strings. It didn't exactly fit the 339, but works well. They both look wonderful, and match the vintage look of the rest of the guitars well. Shipping was fast - almost TOO fast! It's almost as if they ship it to you before you place your order!!!! JK. Great job, Stewmac!

They could use a little more meat on the bottom.Easy to shape and lower

Exactly what I needed!

I have a 2012 Gibson SG standard (in Antique White) and I have never been happy with the corian nut- it doesn't look right, it doesn't tune right and I suspected it could sound better. PLUS the 1-13/32" string spacing made the E string WAY TOO CLOSE to the binding! The 1-21/64" spaced unbleached bone nut fixes ALL of these issues. It sounds great, it looks great, the spacing is a massive improvement and I immediately noticed a difference in tuning it up.

Slotted Bone Nut

By Blues Guitar from WA
(Customer's Reviews) Friday, June 21, 2013


Slotted unbleached bone nut worked fabulous! I busted the nut on my Fender Strat, and checked all the options before buying this one. It was a hair too wide, and about a 16th too tall, but simply cut to size using fine grit sandpaper. I was afraid I might need to open the slots, since I am using GHS 10.5 - 48 strings, but the strings fit just fine. Nice tone - no string buzz - and even while using the whammy bar, it stays in tune. (I use graphite in the slots for lube) I think I will replace the nuts on my other Strats with bone as well. Couldn't be happier!

Good fit and good spacing.

Has good spacing.. Took a bit of sanding and fitting to the nut slot.. Will buy again for sure...
