The PT-1242-00 is Black TUSQ XL 4 string slotted Bass nut.

It is a great option to upgrade or replace the nut on your bass.


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.

    Fantastic upgrade for Epihone Jack Casady !

    Original nut was very soft and strings would bind during tuning. Tuning is now very smooth without the the occasional ‘ping’ sound. Tusq material is very hard and has changed the sound of the bass for the better: much more harmonics, and a much more solid feel. It seems to have improved the sound on the whole range of the instrument (i. e. on fretted notes); I guess that is because the nut now provides a much better anchor to the strings. Highly recommended!

    Absolute perfection!

    I couldn't have asked for a more perfect fit. No sanding or filing needed at all. I'm already noticing my bass staying in tune longer and sounding and playing netter than ever with this awesome Black TUSQ XL Bass Nut. Will be upgrading all my basses with these nuts in the very near future.

    Thank you team Graphtech!

    Fit perfect on an old Tobias Growler

    Needed minimal filing for a large string gauge (65 - 115). Besides that, fit perfectly. Looks good, sounds great. Would buy the same if I needed another.

    Such a great product!

    I fit GraphTech nuts to all of my basses and guitars as the very first thing I do to then when I get them. The website is so informative trust making the right size choice is easy, and the sizes are close enough to not need huge amounts of fitting. Highly recommended, always!

    The network are great for my base

    This nut worked out great for my bass which is an Ibanez G10 sound gear I only had to shave off a little bit off a each end so it would match the width of the neck
