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.

Great stuff !

Bought to replace a graphite nut . There have been a lot of materials nuts have been made of in the half a Century I’ve been building guitars . Ivory being the old standard , because it was easily cut and shaped and mostly was a good sound carrier ( acoustic couple ) and looked beautiful when polished out . Now they’ll haul your butt of to jail fo having it ! I believe this bone has more of the propertys I need than anything else that’s out there . Bought the slotted one cuz I’am old , but they come high enough that I’ll use StewMacs nut spacing and slotting system as it is easy and precise , and does what us old makers have been doing in a fraction of the time .

Slotted Unbleached Bone Nut

The nut was installed in a 2016 Gibson Les Paul Standard. Careful sanding is all that is required.
When both E strings were set to my preference, by sanding the bottom of the nut, the remaining nut slots were perfect. Open strings now are crisp and articulate and the guitar actually plays better too.

After 50 guitars, I still get nervous slotting a nut. These nuts are of excellent quality and are perfectly slotted.

I purchased this to replace a synthetic nut someone installed on my Santa Cruz, it was a hack job on a quality guitar. This one was the perfect choice, it fit great, and has vastly improved the sound, especially on the open G.

I took a Randy Jackson 100 dollar guitar, which had damaged plastic nut and saddle and replaced them with Stewmac,s slotted unbleached bone nut and an unbleached saddle and turn the guitar into a gem. the sound improved by 150% and the typical cheap guitar buzz is gone.
Thank you stewmac.

Great upgrade for Fender Telecasters.

By

Verified Buyer


I bought a used Mexican Nashville Telecaster from EBay. Very nice guitar, but there was some string buzz from a couple of the nut slots being cut too low. I considered using baking soda and superglue as a filler and then re-cut the slot, but I really wanted to do this right. So, I ordered a classic bone nut from Stew Mac and upgraded the guitar. Sounds great and looks nice also.

A quick fix

Fits great. It's way faster to sculpt this pre-slotted mine nut to a guitar, than making a whole new one from an un-cut nut blank. But, I guess it all depends on your time and budget.
