Stewart-MacDonald is your source for quality bone!
You already know bone nuts sound better than plastic. Good news: our vintage-look unbleached bone nuts are now available pre-slotted! It’s easier than ever to install a perfect, super-hard nut. That’s a huge time savings—especially in professional repair shops.

The slots are proportionally-spaced, using the same method as our String Spacing Rule. This means the strings feel right all across the neck—no crowding on the heavier bass strings.

These beautifully shaped nuts are StewMac exclusives, with research and design by our repair experts. Final fitting is all you'll need to do. Sizing Chart

Great quality!

Installed one of these on a Gibson Les Paul. Spacing was great and depths of slots were close. Final precision filing of nut slots is a must though. Quality is terrific and buffs to a very nice gloss!

Best nut ever

Great density, great consistency, great appearance, great tone. Used this product to replace a synthetic ivory nut on my '98 HD-28 VR. Improved tone, depth, & volume tremendously. A friend was ready to trade his D-16, but now loves it after I replaced both nut & saddle with your unbleached bone. I don't need to look any further for nut/saddle material. Thanks for the wonderful quality.

Gibson style precut bone nut

I am very impressed with StewMac's customer service. I ordered a Gibson style, precut, bone nut, and the E & B slots were cut a little too low. After reporting this to customer service, they immediately sent me out a new nut which was perfect. I called customer service to see about sending the old one back, and the very nice girl in customer service told me that I didn't have to send it back because the shipping would probably exceed the $15.00 value of the nut. This is a fantastic company policy, and I am very impressed with my experience in dealing with this company.

these nuts are fantastic

these pre-slotted nuts make it possible for even a non-luthier like me to replace a damaged or broken nut. the first one i used was on a Gibson SG that i bought used that had a broken nut, and i just put one on a used Strat that also came with a chipped nut. you just have to do a little homework if you've never installed a nut previously. Dan Erlewine's Nut Making Step-By-Step is a fantastic resource for the beginner.

best bone

Great upgrade for any non bone nut guitar. quality part and a tone improvement that is more than noticeable. Easy to fit for proper string height.

Tough job made easy!

I'm not a Luthier but have been able to do quality set-ups on all of my own guitars for years including making new nuts from stock blanks. Making new nuts from blanks has always been something that I dreaded doing because all the shaping was done by hand do to not having a belt sander. Just replaced the nut on one of my acoustics with a 6025-VS from Stew-Mac and was so easy that I enjoyed it. I will use nothing else from now on. Love the string spacing.

Too Short

I purchased two of the Gibson nuts and tried to install them on both a Les Paul Traditional and Les Paul Standard. In both cases, this nut was not tall enough. Quality is very good, but I can't imagine these fitting any modern Les Paul. StewMac needs to make them taller to fit a wider range of guitars.

No "bones" about it.....

I have used this product in both Gibson and Fender repairs. The tone and the tuning stability are far better than the stock nut that comes standard. Worth the price for improved tone and performance.

unbleached slotted guitar nut

Great product for someone who does not have the tools or knowledge to cut a nut from a blank. It took me an hour to reduce height, length and thickness for my Eastman AC712. Another hour to lower slots (check often) for intonation and tuning and polishes like glass. Used needle files and polishing pads and it turned out perfect.

Slotted Bone Nut

Replaced the plastic nuts on a Epi Broadway and Sheraton. Excellent!!! Fit and spacing were right on. The stock nuts were junk. Bone nuts really made the guitars come alive. Easy to work with and saved lots of time. Highly recommended. Thanks Stew-Mac.
