“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

Slotted unbleached bone nut

By David Saliba from Wytheville Virginia
(Customer's Reviews) Friday, January 04, 2013


Outstanding! Measurements per specs, well finished, only required minimal finishing to fit. The slots are cut perfectly and required no modifications.

Great Fit

(Customer's Reviews) Thursday, December 27, 2012


Great fit. Very little filing needed on edges to fit my project. No filing needed for the string slots.

Perfect!

Great!

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.

Clearer Highs

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

By Ben H. from Barstow, CA
(Customer's Reviews) Sunday, November 18, 2012


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.

By StacyB from Lexington, KY
(Customer's Reviews) Wednesday, August 22, 2012


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.

A really time saver

By Ramon Miquel from Barcelona, Spain
(Customer's Reviews) Thursday, August 16, 2012


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

lovely. one of the best i've come across

Right price - works nice.

By Moose from Richmond, VA

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!
