“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

Like a charm!

Just replaced my first nut on an Epi Hummingbird I picked up. A little narrow for the slot, otherwise perfect. A little filing - now I have correct string height - no more buzzing at the first fret.

Improved the upper end on my 16 yr. old HD-28. Together with a bone saddle gave me a much more balanced guitar. Made an already great sounding guitar even better -and at a relatively low cost!

Unbleached Bone Nut for Martin Guitars

This was an amazing purchase for restoring my 40 yr old guitar. I had to do some minor fine tuning and it was ready for install. The added sustain, volume, and bite are amazing. The look is amazing as well. A great deal.

Easy install. Major improvement.

It was a snap to replace the worn plastic nut on my Strat. The old part was loosened with a mild tap using a punch and hammer. The new bone nut was a perfect fit. The trusty Fender now plays better than ever.

I've recently received the slotted bone nut for Gibson style and it's really good quality. For this price there's no reason to build one by myself. I'm not going to do better, and the unbleached bone gives a nice vintage look!!!

love it

Got one of these for my JR. All I had to do was lay some wet/dry paper on my marble desktop and sand the bottom to get the angle & height right. Works like a charm and improved the overall tone and tuning. Forget fancy plastics - bone!

Saved time but...

This pre-slotted nut is great if you don't want to invest in a set of gauged nut slotting files, but with all the filing and sanding to get this nut to fit perfectly, I could have made my own.

Pre-cut slotted bone nut

By JAL from Lomita, Ca
(Customer's Reviews) Thursday, July 26, 2012


Being pre-shaped and slotted, these nuts save a lot of time, especially if you don't have a lot of experience shaping string nuts. After installation, I noticed a fairly moderate increase in open string sustain, better harmonic content, and the proverbial "lifting of the veil", with an increase of brightness and clarity, and of course improved tone. It is not a night and day type difference, but a definite solid step to improved tone. Awesome service. STEWMAC ROCKS!

First time nut replacement a breeze!

Preslotted bone nut made me an instant pro. Plastic nut tapped right out and bone nut only needed minimal filing. It's perfect! Of course the SM files, nut slotting gauge (only way to go) and string lifter (must have) that came in the box is the rest of the story. The sizing guide got me to finally pull the trigger and place the order. I almost measured and studied the chart to death. My Xavier Casino copy is now a jewel. The 52 Hot Rod Tele is next.
