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.

    Perfect fit, great Customer Service

    My 1979 American Fender Strat has an odd nut size. Graphtech Customer Support helped me pick out a guitar nut that had perfect string spacing and just needed a a little sanding down to be a perfect fit. The guitar sounds great and stays in tune better than ever. 👍👍👍👍👍

    Tele sounds better

    I get more sustain than with the original nut on my Squire Affinity Telecaster. The length is a tad short but it's better than the original which had an edge-of-the-fret board high E.

    40mm Strat Slotted Nut 10/10

    Fit snug without much sanding and shaping. My strat is a high quality guitar now with the graph tech nut and string saddles!

    The best!

    This was exactly what I was looking for. A very superior quality product. All my guitars have a graphtech nut and is what I install on guitars I work on . Have compared to other and won't use any other.
