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.

Perfect.

By

Verified Buyer


This was a perfect fit my China made Epiphone Les Paul. I'm not sure of the difference it makes as I still need to change the bridge and tuning pegs.

Excellent quality. But I want 12-string versions!

By

Verified Buyer


The quality of these bone nuts are top-notch, and I've yet to receive one that disappointed me in any real way.

BUT! I would like to see 12-string pre-slotted nuts offered. If y'all get on that, I'll name my first-born Stewart MacDonald.

With a little sanding, this fit nicely.

Nice!

By

Verified Buyer


Bought 2 nuts for my Martin, 1 as a backup. They were an excellent fit. Just slightly oversized where I could sand it to fit perfectly. I ended up with the action higher than I needed it (which is exactly what I was going for) and used the new nut file set that I just purchased from Stewmac to make the final height adjustments. Great end result! The guitar's action is back to where I wanted it. Bone nuts sound great.

Very little work required to get this nut to fit just right. being pre slotted was a big help. Thanks Stew Mac.

7.25 radius was perfect. pre cut slots helped considerably. Used Stewmac files to complete slot cutting.(from previous purchase) Dan's video was useful information in installing the nut.

Great time savers. The flat bottom Martin nuts are a little short but other than that...

I have purchased several unbleached bone nuts from Stewmac and I have never been disappointed. They seem to have that antique color that I like in a bone nut. Thanks Stewmac!
