TUSQ Nuts

Man-made ivory from Graph Tech! Available in convenient ready-made shapes and sizes, TUSQ® nuts are preferred by many guitarmakers for rich tone and sustain.

TUSQ is an advanced polymer that's formed under high heat and pressure for uniform density. It's designed to transfer string energy more efficiently, to make guitars come alive with enhanced harmonics, volume and sustain. Final trimming required.

"TUSQ nuts and saddles have improved the sustain and clarity of our guitars. We now use them on all models." —Bob Taylor, Taylor Guitars

Gibson nut for Epiphone

By

Verified Buyer


I noticed that the nut on my Epi Les Paul had a string spread of 1 3/8", but my Gibson Les Paul nut has a spread of 1 7/16" . I always had a harder time playing the Epi , and that was why. So I bought this Tusq nut sized like a Gibson, and put it on the Epi. It needed a small shim to raise it a little bit, not a problem. Then i adjusted the neck and bridge, and it plays great!

Great Nuts!

By

Verified Buyer


Put one on my Epiphone Pro SG. Sounds even better than the stock one (sounded better in the “drop” test on a hard surface too. Dropped in with no sanding and all the slots were cut to specs. Really lucked out.

I really like these nuts. Much easier to work with, for me anyway.

Will complete our Franken-strat baratone guitar

Will require a bit of sanding both in the width and length to fit into the nut slot on our tele baritone neck...looks perfect

Works great on LP

The nut string spacing is just slightly wider than that on my Gibson Les Paul. No issues though, once fitted it plays fine without noticing the spacing difference.

TUSQ Nut = Easy Install

By

Verified Buyer


This was a first time effort for me on my Fender Stratocaster. While I am very handy, I have no luthier training. With the StewMac Erlewine repair video I knew exactly what to do. Guitar sounds great!

Excellent on Epi's

By

Verified Buyer


These nuts are almost perfect right out of the package for Epi's. String spacing was correct, very little sanding and shaping before a final polish which resulted in a bone like appearance. Great stuff!

Much better than plastic

Have yet sand the sides, but initial fit a marked improvement over the plastic one
Very pleased with this

Perfect fit for my Epi

By

Verified Buyer


String spacing on this was perfect. I filed the base down about 1mm do lower the nut height, but no work necessary on the string side.

A good replacement for a bone nut.

East to install with the pre-notched string grooves.
