Tusq nut

By Bill Wilkat from Montreal, Canada
(Customer's Reviews) Thursday, December 27, 2012


Great product, excellent string spacing, easy to install, and tone is great too. I often use these on my guitars, and recommend them to clients all the time.

Not bad

Bought this as a replacement for an Epi Les Paul. Took some work to get the fit exactly right and while I didn't find it to be a huge improvement it is better than the original.

Great Nut

By Guitartec from Coventry, RI USA
(Customer's Reviews) Tuesday, July 10, 2012


All Graph Tech nut compounds are truly an advancement in string nut technology. Like good tone woods, their string nuts also produce a tap tone (a musical note) which help to enhance tone sonically. In contrast to bone, micarta, Delrin, Corrian, plastic, horn, and other laminates, Graph Tech seems to be more uniform in consistency and easier to cut than other man-made materials and last as long as any of them as well.

Tusq Nuts

The only Nuts. Great Tone & sustain and are easier to work with.

Very misleading

By Tbone from Toronto, On
(Customer's Reviews) Saturday, January 28, 2012


I purchased a slotted pre-shaped nut for my guitar thinking it would require very minimal sanding. Not only was the nut too tall and too wide for the neck, the slots were way to shallow. Be advised that these slotted nuts may still require a heck of a lot of work to get them fitting right.

Saved me from going "Nuts"

Slotting bone for guitar nuts has always been difficult for me. I usually build guitars with a 1-7/8" nut so the Martin style pre-slotted are perfect. Great quality and plenty of oversize to work with for fitting and adjustment. Well worth the price.

Good fit, great sound

By oldtimer from western Wisconsin, USA
(Customer's Reviews) Saturday, December 10, 2011


This nut is sized for Taylor guitars, but proved a near-perfect fit on an inexpensive guitar. A small wood spacer was required to fill the factory nut slot. The wider string spacing improved the playablity of this little guitar, and the Tusq material increased sustain and volume. Will use no other nut material in the future.

The best.

By Josh Hohensee from Nashville TN

Outside of real bone or ivory, there is nothing better than Tusq. String spacing is always spot on, they always leave you a little meat so you can adjust to your individual instrument, top quality product. Goes on mine, and all my customer's instruments.

Not bad! (But not bone)

By A. Lucas from Canada
(Customer's Reviews) Wednesday, September 28, 2011


This is a very good nut material; having tried this for the first time though I must say I prefer bone. Looks better, sounds better - however, this is a very good alternative (especially for somebody who does not have the tools to shape and slot their own nut).

Gibson LP Tusq Nut - Avoid Slotted

By lazvt84 from Morgantown, WV
(Customer's Reviews) Wednesday, September 21, 2011


This nut did not fit a Gibson Les Paul Studio guitar. The nut was too shallow and every string fretted out on the first fret with an open strum. We sent back to get unslotted hoping it can be sized/shaped to fit.
