Black TUSQ XL Nuts

Black TUSQ XL Nuts

Self-lubricating nuts from Graph Tech are ideal for string bending and tremolo work. Now in more sizes!

Extra slippery: TUSQ XL® is impregnated with Teflon® (500% more slippery than graphite). During tremolo bends, the strings slide in the slots, returning to accurate pitch.

Dense and resonant: Pressure-formed TUSQ transfers string energy more efficiently, without dead spots found in natural materials. Guitars come alive with enhanced harmonics, volume and sustain.

Pre-shaped: Slotted or unslotted, they require only minor trimming.

Tusq Nuts are Awesome

By

Verified Buyer


I've bought many of the Tusq Nuts for Gibson style and Fender style applications and haven't had any problems with them. The Pre-Grooved nuts are just right for 10 gauge strings so I haven't had to do anything with the grooves. The Gibson style nuts only need a little sanding on the bottom for string height adjustment on some applications and it's an easy job. The Tusq nuts work great on Tremolo equipped guitars and I haven't had any issues with strings sticking in the grooves.

Fit my Squire Strat

By

Verified Buyer


The part fit my Squire Strat nut slot. I purchased the version with string slots already made, but you will have to deepen the slots to get the string height right. So if you don't have nut slot files you will need to purchase some.

The nut does seem to effectively allow the string to move freely when the tremolo is used and the tone seems as good or better than the original.

They sing!

By

Verified Buyer


To my utter surprise, these nuts are fantastic. I thought they would be plastic -- ie, deadish. But when I opened the package, I dropped it on my workbench and was greeted by a ringing "ding." That was a surprise.

Easy to fit and file to shape. And the nut sounds great.

So far so good

By

Verified Buyer


It positions the strings better than the cheap nut that was in my guitar. Strings seems to stay in tune more. Does what it should and looks good doing it.

Perfect

A bit of sanding, a bit of elmer's glue, and it's in.

I can immediately hear the change in my Epiphone Dot, which had a plastic nut.
