Material

The nut model 5040 is a great option to upgrade the nut on your Ibanez Strat style electric guitar (or a guitar with similar specs). It is pre-slotted for a quick and simple install. Flat bottom.

It is available in TUSQ and BLACK TUSQ XL formulations.

 

TUSQ nuts and saddles have 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 consistent transfer of vibrations to the guitar top. TUSQ nuts, saddles and bridge pins are designed to transfer the right frequencies more efficiently from the string to the guitar body.


 

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.

    Just what I needed.

    The low E end on the nut of my 1975 hardtail Strat broke. I tried the Fender part and also had a nut made that claimed would use my specs. Both were no good with too narrow width (1/8), and too wide string spacing. The Tusq 5040 did the trick. I had to radius the bottom to 9.5, and made my own nut file but cutting a razor blade with a dremmal tool. Set up went well, sounds great. Very happy :)

    finally a string spacing for us little guys.

    Decided to find the tightest string spacing possible for a custom tele build, couldn't be happier.

    Direct nut replacement for Sterling Cutlass

    This nut is a direct swap for the Sterling Cutlass series guitars. I did have to sand the base a little for the correct height. After that, work’s beautifully! Great product!
