Unbleached Bone Nuts

Unbleached Bone Nuts

Stewart-MacDonald is your source for quality bone!
Bone is traditionally favored for quality instruments. Our unbleached bone is even harder than bleached white bone, and has a mottled cream vintage look. Its hardness and density contributes to good tone, it polishes well, and it allows more precise slot filing.

Blank nuts have oversize length and height, for custom shaping in your shop. They're ready for trimming, filing, sanding and slotting.

Preshaped nuts will save you a LOT of work — a head start for the novice builder, and a bonus for the busy repair shop where time is money! The dimensions have been carefully researched, and minor trimming, slotting, and sanding are all that's needed to fit most popular guitars.

Unbleached is so natural Looking

By

Verified Buyer


I got some of these for my Taylor and Martins. The nuts look like they should have been this color from the factory. I don't know if they add to my tone, as I'm not that good at hearing the small differences. But the look is worth the price and effort. StewMac has always met my needs for fast shipping and correcting any error (i only have one case that happened but it was awesome Cust Servce). Quality and service you can trust!

Unbleached nuts for my maestro sg

By

Verified Buyer


The nuts worked very well as I had to expoxy the blank and pre slotted nut together to get desired
thickness.

Angle is great.

By

Verified Buyer


I have used these before and they fit that angled slot very nicely. The guitar I bought this batch for needed a tweak due to a previous luthier altering the slot. Not the nut's fault.
