TUSQ XL Nuts

Self-lubricating nuts from Graph Tech are ideal for string bending and tremolo work. Now in more sizes!

Extra slippery: TUSQ XL® is impregnated with Teflon® (500% more slippery than graphite). During tremolo bends, the strings slide in the slots, returning to accurate pitch.

Dense and resonant: Pressure-formed TUSQ transfers string energy more efficiently, without dead spots found in natural materials. Guitars come alive with enhanced harmonics, volume and sustain.

Pre-shaped: Slotted or unslotted, they require only minor trimming.

Ivory color now available
Customers have asked for a white version of their favorite Black TUSQ XL. That turned out to be easier said than done, and took years to perfect, but now it's here! It looks like ivory, but won't chip or flake.

Very Happy with the Tusq nut. Easy to work with. Plays great. Doesn't bind with the tremolo

TUSQ XL for Gibson LP Studio 

By
(Customer's Reviews)


I have an Alpine White Les Paul Studio that would not stay in tune and never felt quite right. I had tried a nut lubricant and it helped with the tuning stability but didn't really fix the problem. This fixed the problem! That guitar stays in tune and I was able to finally get a proper set up which makes it play like I had always imagined it would. This was my first time replacing a nut and now that I have done it I will never hesitate doing it again with other guitars. Excellent product!

Easy Install and Perfect Cut Nuts!

Installed these on my Import Strat ESP LTD ST guitar. Slight sanding is needed. Very easy to install if you follow the instruction. Instant tuning improvement is noticed. No more need to lubricate the nut. Tusq XL rocks! Would like to see stewmac stock Tusq XL for PRS SE model guitars too.
