“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

Saved time but...

By Blake Brauer from Chicago, IL
(Customer's Reviews) Wednesday, August 01, 2012


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.

If your left handed, go with the shaped, slot yourself.

By Heagan from Fort Worth, TX
(Customer's Reviews) Tuesday, July 17, 2012


I managed to get the nut to work on a 2011 mim telecaster. It wasn't a hit the ground running experience like the righties get. Great quality nut. It fit in the slot like a champ. Thankfully it is really high, which allowed me to file the slot angles the other way. I think next time I will order the shaped version and slot myself. Three stars because they were slotted directional and no left hand option.

TOO low

By jerry wallace from artesia, nm
(Customer's Reviews) Friday, July 06, 2012


I recently purchased 2 of these for my 2011 USA Les Paul..Both of them measure about .338" in overall heigth..The original corian is .350" All of the strings fret out on the first fret and I havent touched them as far fitting..These are already to low for my LP..Has anyone else had this problem?? The heigth needs to be higher.

takes some fiddlin'

Bought one for my Epi LP Standard. It wasn't plug and play. Had to fiddle around with sandpaper and various tools for five or six hours til I got the action just right. Patience is key. Thanks Stew-Mac!

This slotted nut saved me a lot of time. I only had to file it slightly to fit my Martin and I'm very pleased with the results
