Description:

The PT-6642-00 is a great option to replace or upgrade the nut on your six string acoustic or electric guitar.

It has a flat bottom and is pre-slotted for a quick and simple install.

 

The PT-6642-00 is also available in a convenient 10 pack (LT-6642-10).

 

Black TUSQ XL is designed to boost guitar tone and performance. This precision engineered nut is made with a specially formulated material which couples the strings' vibrations to the neck and brings out the hidden harmonics and richness in every note. It is based on the highly resonant TUSQ man made ivory, but is impregnated with PTFE to improve the tuning performance of the guitar.

    Perfection

    Arrived quickly, fit perfectly, did not have to take a single tool to it. Glued it in and strung it up! Non locking tremolo stays in tune now

    You will need to shim it

    In terms of tone, the Tusk XL is a dramatic improvement over a plastic OEM nut. I am amazed at the tonal/response difference. If you have upgraded the pickups/electronics in your guitar, swapping out the plastic nut with a tusk will raise the bar overall on the tone of your instrument and you will really hear those upgrades.

    A black PT 6642 XL nut, though, appears to be the closest fit to an Ibanez SA series electric nut replacement. The PT6642 is the perfect length and string spacing. It is, though, a few .0 MM too narrow and too short, but can work well with a shim of .040mm. If you order a nut that is a touch higher, the options available get even more narrow and the string spacing too wide. If you search for a nut with a width you could sand to fit, the height drops significantly in the options available, and you are seriously pushing the strings too wide on the board. So, I made a shim: it looks great and the upgrade in tone is more than worth that extra effort.

    Tusq XL and Bigbsby

    The Tusq product line is really a no brainier on a Bigsby which this was purchased for. We have 3 acoustics and now 4 electric guitars, all have a Tusq nut.

    Outstanding product!

    Thanks Graphtech.
