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.

    Great product!

    Really glad I went with this. Took a little shaping and adjusting the slots but certainly saved time with it being pre-slotted.

    Tusq XL

    I've recently upgraded my Telecaster guitar with new pickups, electronics, tuners, saddles and strings. It all came together when I installed the Graphtech TusqXL. I am completely amazed at how much it has improved the tone of this guitar.

    I would rank it as the #1 factor that has affected the guitars tone. Very nice product!

    Replacement Nut On Cheap Tele copy

    I’m rather shocked how much difference this made, especially on the tome of the open strings. Very easy to fit and well worth the effort.

    Graph Tech Nuts Rock!

    I have made changes to an affordable Strat style electric I bought two years ago and working on a budget to get it to where and how I've wanted it to play have been a journey.

    New pickups, bridge, locking tuners, pots and five-way switch, along with fret leveling and polishing, each improved the playability, tone, and sustain, but yet there was something missing.

    A friend visiting was checking my labor of love out and inquired as to what type of nut I had installed, and I told him whatever it had come with which I was pretty sure it was about as cheap a plastic nut there was, but it was setup nicely and I didn't the return on investment of a new nut and time to get it right would pay that great a dividend in improved sound and playability.

    After a few days of this weighing on my mind I decided I would research nuts and decide which material I would change to if I did change the nut and watched many videos and read lots of reviews and articles, before deciding on a Black Graph Tech 5010-00 TUSQ XL Nut.

    It did require a little sanding for a perfect fit, but within an hour I had it fitted, and ready to play, and play it does! The sound is wonderful, very much what I had been striving for, and it now seems to have sustain that goes on forever.

    If you want a big bang for the buck improvement in sound quality, look no further than Graph Tech TUSQ XL Nuts for the magic to take your sound to the next level!

    Come on its easy

    Replacing your factory plastic nut is the very first thing you should do. No special tools required and you get great satisfaction of doing your own work. This simple upgrade pay you back in better tuning stability, less friction and increased sustain. Come on what are you waiting for.
