Unbleached Bone Nuts

Stewart-MacDonald is your source for quality bone!
Bone is traditionally favored for quality instruments. Our unbleached bone is even harder than bleached white bone, and has a mottled cream vintage look. Its hardness and density contributes to good tone, it polishes well, and it allows more precise slot filing.

Blank nuts have oversize length and height, for custom shaping in your shop. They're ready for trimming, filing, sanding and slotting.

Preshaped nuts will save you a LOT of work — a head start for the novice builder, and a bonus for the busy repair shop where time is money! The dimensions have been carefully researched, and minor trimming, slotting, and sanding are all that's needed to fit most popular guitars.

Unbleached Nut Blanks

I have used about 15 of these and they just look so much better when carefully polished and the material is easy to work. Frankly I can't tell the tone difference between any man made material and bone except brass, but I do believe the lanolin in the bone nut is beneficial for tuning and bending.

Bone Nut

What can I say, It's a bone nut. Did some filling but still needs some fine tuning. These work fine with no problems so far.

I really like the unbleached bone nuts and saddles. They really look nice when polished out but what I really like is they are a bit harder due to skipping the bleaching process.
