Man-made ivory from Graph Tech! Available in convenient ready-made shapes and sizes, TUSQ® nuts are preferred by many guitarmakers for rich tone and sustain.

TUSQ is an advanced polymer that's formed under high heat and pressure for uniform density. It's designed to transfer string energy more efficiently, to make guitars come alive with enhanced harmonics, volume and sustain. Final trimming required.

"TUSQ nuts and saddles have improved the sustain and clarity of our guitars. We now use them on all models." —Bob Taylor, Taylor Guitars

Good Nut

(Customer's Reviews)


Sounds good, but looks like cheap plastic!

It's basically plastic

I can't say I like it. I shape nuts/saddle on a belt sander and this stuff like all plastics tend to melt and stick to the material. Also the tone isn't so good according to a customer. It sounds, feels, and cuts just like plastic, even if it is slightly better than the cheap plastic nut/saddles found on cheap guitars. I'm definitely going to stick with bone. It's cheap, plentiful, takes a beautiful polish, and it sounds great.

nice but ...

String spacing is fine, and it only require minimal shaping, but the slots were cut too deep so there was string buzz on the b and e strings. Maple shim did the job though.
