What is the Difference in TUSQ Materials?


TUSQ nuts have a rich tone without the inconsistency found in ivory, bone, and other natural materials. Bone and ivory have hard and soft spots (grain) throughout each piece, hampering the consistent transfer of vibrations to the guitar top. TUSQ nuts are designed to transfer the right frequencies more efficiently from the string to the guitar body.

Best for Acoustic Guitars.


TUSQ XL and Black TUSQ XL nuts are designed to boost guitar tone and performance. These precision-engineered nuts are made with a specially formulated material that 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 permanently lubricated to improve the tuning performance of the guitar.

Best for Electric Guitars and BASS.

    Easy install

    Fit a new Epiphone Embassy Pro with minimal sanding. As a tech, I always recommend Tusq xl when upgrading a nut.

    Near Perfect

    I bought without measuring after inquiring about an Epiphone Thunderbird. Its nearly perfect, but just slightly narrower where you can feel some millimeter of so of the neck that was previously covered by the original nut.

    But it works, fits, and matches the original almost exact. Its a close enough match that i'm satisfied.

    Bass Nut Purchase

    Fit perfectly on the bass I intended to install it on. Was replacing one that had string slots cut too deep, which caused rattling at the first fret. Problem solved with the one I purchased.

    Unusable on my bass. width was okay but I would have to place shims underneath to make it work. It was not tall enough.
