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.

Great tone.

By

Verified Buyer


The bone is a little tougher to work with. (Filing and sanding) but the tone is well worth the extra effort.

They sound good

By

Verified Buyer


I’ve bought these many times. They sound great, look great, and are a good value for your money. They usually fit great too, though if you are buying the ones for a Fender style guitar, there are sometimes very slight anomalies in the thickness which may cause them to not be snug in the routed slot of the neck. So, buy several at a time if you can, so that you have a few to choose from. I will certainly continue to use them on my guitars.

Good quality not for an epiphone les Paul.

By

Verified Buyer


This will not fit an epiphone les Paul, it is the correct width, but it is too skinny for it. Buy another one. Will keep in my storage for another guitar.

These are very good quality bone. Having the radius pre cut in the bottom is a big time saver.
