Stewart-MacDonald is your source for quality bone!
Bone is traditionally preferred for making nuts and saddles on quality instruments.

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

By
(Customer's Reviews)


I used these blanks on a 1930s Gibson made Carson J Robison guitar. The color was perfect and blends right in with this well loved and played hard and hung up wet instrument. The first saddle blank had a slight curve to it and since it was such a wide one I was fabricating I wasn't sure it would have enough meat once I flattened it. I called customer service and explained my concern and they sent me another one the next day. This is just one of the reasons I buy all of my supplies from StewMac.
