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.

The one that fits the Gibson style kits, lp and 335, is the Gibson narrow ... 1 5/8". I have also used the standard size, which works but the e strings are very close to the edges.

The nut was a rough perfect. Required just a bit of slot filing, fine tuning and sanding and voilla! Looks and plays great.

Elevated my SG

By

Verified Buyer


Replaced the stark white factory nut in my SG as the previous owner had chipped it and it tended to bind on the B & G. Having the nut pre slotted like this one allowed me to just shape and size it to get it right and have the action correct. Even though they are more costly then a blank it saved me the cost of a good set of files. The unbleached nut seems made for my SG, it looks and works beautifully. Thanks Stewmac!

slotted unbleached bone nut

By

Verified Buyer


A real time saver having the string slots in place already. Even setting the individual depths was easier with the spacing already sorted. There was just enough extra material to let me choose to sand more from the bass string edge, thus giving the high E string about .5mm more room to the fret edges. I used the 3/16" file to clean and level the nut slot for best fit. would recommend this for sure.

Sweet Time Saver

By

Verified Buyer


I've always made my bone nuts from blanks. I was out of blanks and had to order a bridge for my newest guitar so just included this. I didn't even need to adjust (deepen) the slots. For this guitar it was PERFECT!
